HCBS Web Tool Enhancements for Level of Care Change

January 18, 2018

Effective January 19, 2018 the Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) Web Tool will be updated to ensure all participants meet a minimum nursing facility level of care (LOC) score of 24 in order to be eligible for all HCBS authorized by the Division of Senior and Disability Services (DSDS).  Any reassessment submitted after this date with a LOC score of 21 or lower will result in ‘Criteria Not Met’.  No further action on the Assessment Screen will be allowed.

This update to the HCBS Web Tool is most applicable to HCBS providers participating in the reassessment process, but is visible to all users of the HCBS Web Tool. 

Questions regarding this memorandum should be directed to the HCBS Systems and Data Reporting Unit via email to DSDSWebTool@health.mo.gov.
