Common Questions - Developmental Disabilities - For Providers
When a support coordinator is doing a home visit for a Quarterly Review, all services are being entered separately, which includes a monitoring of home binder and observation of companion care and observation of LTPCS services, and a PERS unit the S.C. uses the code of 81. If that S.C. comes back to the support coordination office and fills out the billing sheet the S.C. would use a 81 for monitoring, and observation, and type of contact would a 1, but if the S.C. filled out all the billing sheets in the home, then the type of contact would be a 4.
Also, if while making a monthly phone contact, which is the service activity of a 81 and while on the phone one completely filles out the billing sheet then the type of contact would be a 5; however, if one hung up the phone and then completed the billing sheet, then the type of contact would be a 2. Is this correct?
Also, when a data entry person is entering the billing forms, onne is unable to enter the amount of time spent documenting log if the type of contact is only a 4 or 5. Is this correct. This answer relates to the first question that I asked.
