ODP Announcement 19-018 announces a new requirement and training for all SCOs and providers of AAW services to develop Quality Management Plans (QM Plans), and accompanying Action Plans, effective July 1, 2019, per the new Chapter 6100 regulations.
QM Planning is a major way in which ODP promotes continuous quality improvement for the individuals they serve. Under ODP’s Chapter 51 regulations, SCOs and providers delivering AAW services only were exempt from these QM Planning requirements while SCOs and providers of Consolidated, P/FDS, and Community Living (ID/A) Waiver services were required to develop and implement QM Plans and Action Plans.
As of July 1, 2019, all SCOs and providers serving participants in the AAW program as well as in the ID/A programs will be required to comply with the new Chapter 6100.45 Quality Management regulations by developing QM Plans and accompanying Action Plans.
ODP will provide webinar training for AAW SCOs and providers on development of QM Plans and Action Plans on Monday, March 18, 2019, from 10:00 am – 11:30 am. Register online for the AAW Provider – Quality Management Webinar (Note: This training will be recorded and posted to MyODP.org for future viewing).
