A change form is used to document any agreed changes to the ISP or related materials. It may be initiated by the person, guardian, family, provider, or SC/PA. To streamline the change process, some changes may be made immediately by notifying ISP team members. Other changes, such as adding or discontinuing services, require approval. The change form provides documentation of what was changed, when it was changed, and who was notified or gave approval for the change.
Completed change forms are filed with the ISP at the CDDP or Brokerage. Providers must be notified of changes which impact the services they are expected to deliver, by providing a copy of the change form, changed document, or updated job description or service agreement.
For complete instructions, see the chapter called Making Changes in the ISP Instruction Manual.
