22VAC45-51-120. Periodic Review of Ineligibility Determinations.

When DBVI determines that an applicant is ineligible for vocational rehabilitation services or determines that an individual receiving vocational rehabilitation services under an IPE is no longer eligible for vocational rehabilitation services, DBVI shall:

1. Make a determination of ineligibility only after providing the individual, or as appropriate, the individual's representative, with an opportunity for full consultation;

2. Inform the individual in writing, supplemented as necessary by other modes of communication consistent with the informed choice of the individual, of the ineligibility determination including reasons for that determination;

3. Inform the individual in writing, supplemented as necessary by other modes of communication consistent with the informed choice of the individual, the means by which the individual may express and seek remedy for dissatisfaction, including the procedures for review of determinations by DBVI;

4. Provide the individual with a description of services available from the client assistance program established in the disAbility Law Center of Virginia; and

5. Within 12 months of the ineligibility determination and annually thereafter if requested by the individual or, if appropriate, by the individual's representative, review any ineligibility determination that is based on a finding that the individual is incapable of achieving an employment outcome. This review need not be conducted in situations in which the individual has refused it, the individual is no longer present in the state, the individual's whereabouts are unknown, or the individual's medical condition is rapidly progressive or terminal.
