Life Sharing

ODP Announcement 23-036 announces that the Consolidated Waiver amendment included new qualification criteria for Life Sharing providers that render services to individuals with a medically complex condition. This communication provides initial guidance for the following:

  • Life Sharing providers, SCs, and AEs who have questions about how to determine if an individual has a medically complex condition and how to complete the DP1090 Form;
  • Life Sharing providers currently serving individuals who may now meet the medically complex condition criteria; or
  • Life Sharing providers that are not currently providing services to individuals who have a verified medically complex condition but may do so in the future, and Life Sharing providers that will serve an individual with a verified medically complex condition who enrolls after publication of this communication.

The Office of Developmental Programs (ODP) understands the need for more guidance, which is actively being developed and will be communicated with stakeholders. Please see the following items for current guidance.

Questions about this communication should be directed to the appropriate ODP Regional Office.

The Office of Developmental Programs (ODP) is continuing to align the AAW with the other ODP waivers. This alignment includes the removal of procedure code W7234. This procedure code will be removed from HCSIS, and providers will be unable to bill this procedure code within PROMISe for dates of service on and after July 1, 2023.
