Policy

ICC Agency Reports to OMH
Specific data is submitted by the ICC Agencies within prescribed timeframes to OMH to assist in assuring that the HCBS Waiver is being implemented effectively within approved guidelines and to assure timely provision of technical assistance by OMH. These include the following.

Annual Administrative Review
As the primary oversight agency for the HCBS Waiver Program, OMH plays a major role in quality management. For OMH to perform this function, ICC Agencies must complete and submit an Administrative Review Form each year. The Administrative Review Form provides information regarding- referrals, internal agency policies, procedures, sufficiency of providers, trends and quality management. The Administrative Review Form is required to be completed and submitted in accordance with directives issued by OMH, Central Office. ICC Agencies will be notified each year with an updated form and guidance to complete the document. OMH, Central Office and OMH Field Office will review the Administrative Review Form and provide technical assistance, as needed.
