Habilitation (HAB) services shall be goal-oriented and include specific, detailed methods and measurable objectives to accomplish goals.
Habilitation (HAB) services may include the associated costs related to the use of community resources when increasing the PARTICIPANT’S capacity to participate in the community.”
“The goals of Habilitation-Supported Employment services are to provide long-term ongoing support to PARTICIPANTS in competitive employment and increase PARTICIPANT independence.
Habilitation-Supported Employment services consist of paid employment for persons for whom competitive employment at or above the minimum wage is unlikely, and who because of their disabilities, need intensive ongoing support to perform in a work setting. Supported employment is conducted in integrated work sites in which persons without disabilities are employed. Supported employment includes activities needed to sustain paid work by individuals receiving waiver services, including job development, placement, supervision and training. When supported employment services are provided at a work site in which persons without disabilities are employed, payment will be made only for the adaptations, supervision and training required by individuals receiving waiver services as a result of their disabilities, and will not include payment for the supervisory activities rendered as a normal part of the business setting.
Habilitation-Supported Employment services shall be reduced as PARTICIPANT independence is increased.”
“The goal of respite services is to support family relationships to sustain PARTICIPANT living in the family home.
Respite services provide supervision and/or assistance for PARTICIPANTS who are unable to care for themselves because of the absence or need for relief of the persons normally providing the care. Respite services shall be furnished on a short-term basis.
Short-term basis shall be defined as 30 consecutive days. Exceptions may be made by the Department of Health (DOH) on a case-by-case basis.”
