Dana Halvorson

As noted on the CMS.gov website, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has revised the Intermediate Care Facilities for Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities (ICF/IID) State Operations Manual (SOM) Appendix J – Interpretive Guidelines (IGs) to clarify the intent of the Conditions of Participation (CoPs) for ICF/IID as well as represent current standards of practice in the field. In addition, the probes and procedures have been removed from the IGs and placed into an Exhibit in the SOM. The CMS memo with this information can be found here
