DHS updates developmental disabilities screening document in MnCHOICES

DHS made the following changes:

  • • Updated the developmental disabilities (DD) screening document in the MnCHOICES assessment
  • • Updated MMIS to capture when MnCHOICES assessments occur
  • • Updated the monthly MnCHOICES long-term services and supports (LTSS) recipient report so lead agency staff can track assessments for people who use DD programs or services.
  • Because of these changes, DHS no longer requires lead agency staff to enter the long-term care (LTC) screening document into MMIS for people who use DD programs or services. DHS will update and publish MnCHOICES forms referencing this process in the near future.

    Lead agency staff now can track MnCHOICES assessments for people who use DD programs and services

    Background information

    When MnCHOICES launched, DHS required lead agency staff to enter both a developmental disabilities (DD) screening document and a long-term care (LTC) screening document into MMIS. This requirement allowed staff to track when they last completed a MnCHOICES assessment.

    Instructions for MMIS entry of DD screening document

    Effective immediately, lead agency staff should use code 60 (MnCHOICES) in field 41 (current services) on the DD screening document to capture if a MnCHOICES assessment was completed.

    Lead agency staff should stop entering the LTC screening document from MnCHOICES into MMIS for people who use DD programs or services.
