Review of ISP Definition Consistency

Proposed Language (Page 10 of 25):

"Review of ISP" means that the provider evaluates and updates the individual's progress toward meeting the individualized service plan objectives and documents the outcome of this review. For DMAS to determine that these reviews are satisfactory and complete, the reviews shall (i) update the goals, objectives, and strategies of the ISP to reflect any change in the individual's progress and treatment needs as well as any newly identified problems; (ii) be conducted in a manner that enables the individual to participate in the process; and (iii) be documented in the individual's medical record no later than 15 calendar days from the date of the review.


This definition conflicts with:

b. Documentation of this review shall be added to the individual's medical record no later than the last day of the month in which this review is conducted, as evidenced by the dated signatures of the LMHP, LMHP-supervisee, LMHP-resident, QMHP-A, QMHP-C, or QMHP-E and the individual.

Definition of a Review and Description of Review not consistent across regs.


Consistent language of 15 calendar days from the date of the review through-out the regulations.
