Legal authority

CMS-approved EIDBI state plan amendment (PDF), Minn. Stat. §256B.0949

Definition

Individual treatment plan (ITP) development and progress monitoring: An EIDBI service that covers the development of the person’s initial ITP and ongoing monitoring of his or her progress. The ITP is a person-centered plan of care that:

  • • Is created from the information gathered in the person’s comprehensive multi-disciplinary evaluation (CMDE)
  • • Specifies the type and amount of medically necessary services the person will receive.
  • Eligible providers

    The following MHCP-enrolled, EIDBI providers can deliver and bill for ITP development and progress monitoring:

    The QSP must complete ITP and Progress Monitoring, DHS-7109 and supervise the ITP’s implementation. Level I or II providers may provide input.

    Process

    Each person’s ITP must:

  • • Specify the name of the QSP
  • • Be culturally and linguistically appropriate, individualized and person-centered
  • • Be based on the person’s diagnosis and CMDE recommendations
  • • Include any specialized equipment or materials required
  • • Include techniques that support and are consistent with the person’s communication mode and learning style
  • • Include discharge criteria that will be used and a defined transition plan that meets the requirements outlined in EIDBI – How to complete ITP and progress monitoring, DHS-7109
  • • Identify any significant changes in the person’s condition or family circumstances
  • • Incorporate the values, goals, culture, language and preferences of the person and the person’s family.
  • The QSP must submit an ITP progress monitoring update at least every six months of treatment, or more frequently as determined by the CMDE or QSP provider. This is to determine if the person is making progress toward goals and objectives specified in the ITP.

    A person is eligible to continue receiving EIDBI services if he or she continues to both:

  • • Make reasonable progress toward goals and objectives specified in the ITP
  • • Meet medical necessity requirements.
  • A person continues to receive EIDBI services while the provider team completes ITP progress monitoring updates.
