Oregon Department of Human Services, Aging and People with Disabilities and Developmental Disabilities
A provider or applicant may apply to the Department for a variance from a provision of these rules. The provider must justify to the Department that such a variance does not jeopardize the health, safety, or welfare of the individuals or violate state or federal laws. If the variance applies to the care and services for an individual, the provider must provide evidence that the variance is consistent with the currently approved ISP for the individual.
A variance is granted in writing on a Department-approved form. A variance granted to one AFH-DD provider does not constitute a precedent for any other AFH-DD provider. A variance is specific to a licensed site.
