22VAC45-80-60. Certification of ineligibility.

A. When it is determined that independent living rehabilitation services cannot be expected to assist an individual to engage or continue in employment or to function more independently in family or community, a certification of ineligibility shall be signed and dated by a DVH staff member. A copy shall be provided to the individual simultaneously.

Such determination shall be made only after full consultation with the individual or, as appropriate, his guardian, or other representative. After affording a clear opportunity for this consultation, the DVH shall ensure notification in writing of the action taken and shall inform the individual of his rights and the means by which he may express and seek remedy for any dissatisfaction, including procedures for administrative review and fair hearings. The individual shall be provided a detailed explanation of the availability of the resources within the Client Assistance Program, Department for Rights of Virginians with Disabilities; and as appropriate, referral shall be made to other agencies and facilities, including, when appropriate, the vocational rehabilitation program.

B. Review of ineligibility determination. When DVH has certified the ineligibility of an applicant for independent living rehabilitation services because of a determination that these services cannot be expected to assist the individual to engage or continue employment or to continue to function more independently in family or community, the individual's ineligibility status will be reviewed annually. The review will not be conducted in situations where the individual has refused the review, is no longer present in Virginia, or the individual's whereabouts are unknown.
