Provider Guidance


Effective 3/19/2020, OPWDD has directed that Community Habilitation can be conducted by alternative means. Alternative means can include conducting services by telephone or teleconferencing services.


Care Management staff have been advised that:   

• Community Habilitation providers may evaluate if an individual may benefit or could conduct Community Habilitation services by alternative means.  

• If face to face interactions must happen, safe social distancing will take place between the individual and Community Habilitation worker.  

• Life Plans will not require an addendum stating these changes of Community Habilitation services.
