OLTL assessment Guidance for OBRA and Act 150 Service Coordinators

In June 2020, the Office of Long-Term Living (OLTL) issued transition plans to phase out temporary changes to the OBRA Waiver and Act 150 Program via the OLTL Listserv. The transition plans direct the OBRA and Act 150 Program Service Coordinators (SCs) to resume performing face-to-face assessments and allow telephonic assessments when risk factors are present in the participant’s home. The transition plans also allow the SCs to make adjustments (additions or reductions) to service plans as determined by the participant’s assessment. On August 26, 2020, OLTL issued additional guidance for OBRA and Act 150 SCs as they resume face-to-face assessments. Questions about this information should be directed to the OLTL Provider Helpline at 800-932-0939.
