IPSIDD services must not duplicate OPWDD funded home and community based services (HCBS), including intensive behavioral services, or services provided in clinic treatment facilities and hospital outpatient departments or services provided by certified home health agencies. However, services described by the same clinical procedure code may be provided to address different clinical needs.
(f) Time spent receiving another Medicaid service shall not be counted toward IPSIDD billable service time in instances when the Medicaid service is received simultaneously with IPSIDD.
(g) See 10 NYCRR Part 86 for reimbursement methodology.
