Person-Centered Care Planning

Person-centered care planning (PCCP) requirements for Medicaid HCBS providers (including ADHC) became effective March 2014 with the promulgation of the federal Home and Community-based Services (HCBS) Settings Rule. The regulations spell out what is required for the person-centered planning process and the actual care plan. Absent guidance or initial enforcement from DOH, ADHCC provided a session on this topic at the 2018 annual conference. This lead to the creation of a workgroup to discuss opportunities for improved care plan templates, care planning challenges, and compliance with the new standards. The workgroup, comprised of ADHCC members from across the state, met for two full days in June and Sept. at the LeadingAge NY/ADHCC offices. With assistance from Gail Weinstein, LeadingAge NY ProCare Consultant, the workgroup developed the following resources:

  • Sample person-centered care plan template
  • Sample person-centered care plan template for Community Integration
  • Protocols or guidelines for person-centered care planning
  • Care plan meeting coversheet
  • Care plan policy and procedure
