Instructions for completing Significant Change /Modification Request Form
Purpose
These instructions are intended to assist our agencies providing PCS to children to identify significant
changes in participant functioning that result in an increase or decrease in the unmet needs. IDAPA
16.03.23.010.06. Significant Change in Client’s Condition. A major change in the client’s status that
affects more than one area of the client’s functional or health status, and requires review or revision of
the care plan. The Medicaid Nurse Reviewer will use this information to approve or deny significant
change requests.
Instructions
1. Verify the participant has had a change in functioning that is significant enough to warrant a
change in the participant’s amount of help they need in any areas found in the most recent PCS for
Children Assessment. (This should be on file in the agency office.)
2. Provider supervising personnel should visit the participant to assess what functioning areas have
been impacted. Only in emergency situations will the Medicaid Nurse Reviewer consider a
modification request without a provider visit to the participant’s home.
3. If a change has occurred in any of the functioning areas, describe the participant’s specific ability
in the appropriate box. Only fill out those areas in which a change has occurred.
4. Under “Justification for Change” at the top of the form, please note what has caused the
participant’s change in functioning, when the change began, and the anticipated length of time the
change in functioning will continue. Include in this area any changes to Available Supports when
applicable.
5. Attach additional documentation that supports your observations if applicable and available. This
may include attendant progress notes, supervising visit notes, the physician’s history and physical,
or office visit notes.
6. The Provider Supervising personnel (if completed the request) and the participant or the
participant’s guardian must sign and date the request.
7. If the change is approved by the Medicaid Nurse Reviewer. The Plan of Care must be updated to
reflect the change and the Significant Change form must be attached to the updated Plan of Care
