New ICF Rules

ICF New Rules: HHSC hosted a stakeholder meeting on new proposed ICF rules. The draft proposed rules are the first step in implementing HB 2025 (the bill that had Sen. Schwertner’s SB 932 amended to it at the end of the last legislative session). The proposed rules remove the administrative penalty cap in ICF, significantly change the scope and severity charts in ICF rule, removes right to correct in circumstances where a violation causes actual harm or is pervasive and has the potential for actual harm. The rules also transition ICF licenses to a three year period with applicable licensure fee change.
