The Division of Disability and Rehabilitative Services Bureau of Developmental Disabilities Services must ensure that service providers approved under Indiana’s Home-and Community-Based Services waivers or a community residential facility (e.g. supervised group living) have policies and procedures to address all types of emergency situations.
The Provider Emergency Plan policy (BDDS 2022-08-R-001) outlines the requirements for providers who approved for supervised group living, residential habilitation-hourly, residential habilitation-daily, structured family caregiving, and participant assistance and care.
The policy will become effective on Aug. 19, 2022. The policy is available on the DDRS Policies webpage:
