Rule Rule 411-015-0000

The purpose of establishing priorities for persons to be served is to assist the Department in addressing the following goals:


To enable persons eligible for and receiving services to remain in the least restrictive and least costly setting consistent with their service needs; and


To serve those persons who are the most functionally impaired and who have no or inadequate alternative service resources; and


To assure access to services paid by the Department to eligible persons; and


To assure that services paid by the Department, and the setting in which they are provided are safe and adequate; and


To manage limited resources to enable the greatest possible number of persons to receive needed services through a priority system based on the Department’s assessment of the individual’s functional impairment and alternative service resources.
