Effective immediately, Person-Centered Plans (PCPs) with effective dates after July 1, 2020 do not require a basic service authorization or a paper provider signature page. As of July 1, 2020, all PCPs continue to be completed in LTSSMaryland with the appropriate services named and authorized in the detailed service authorization section of the PCP. Therefore, basic service authorization details and paper signature pages are no longer needed.
Coordinators of Community Services (CCS) agencies must delete all services that may pull into the basic service authorization section when creating a revised or annual PCP with an effective date after July 1, 2020. There is no need to upload a signature page.
- Regional Offices will not request clarifications for Basic Service Authorizations or paper Provider signature pages.
- Providers should not complete basic service authorization paper signature sheets for any PCPs effective after July 1, 2020.
