INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE
LONG TERM SERVICES AND SUPPORTS REFERRAL FORM (CP-2)
Referral Process for CWA
The County Welfare Agency (CWA) utilizes this form to refer individuals residing in the community
who are seeking nursing facility (NF) placement, assisted living (AL) residences or Waiver programs
and are potentially or currently Medicaid eligible or who are converting from private pay to Medicaid
to the County Area Agency on Aging/Aging & Disability Resource Connection (AAA/ADRC). The
CP-2 is also used by the CWA to verify Medicaid eligibility when referring NF residents who are
requesting Waiver services to the Office of Community Choice Options (OCCO) Regional Office.
The referral form will serve as verification of financial eligibility and should include a physician-
completed PA-4 form.
Referrals need to be made if one of the following scenarios occurs:
(a)
Consumers seeking long term services and supports (LTSS) who, upon initial intake, appear to
be eligible for Medicaid Waiver services and may be eligible for an expedited process. In such
cases, the CP-2 referral to the AAA/ADRC will be accomplished prior to and/or while the
verification and validation process of financial eligibility is being determined.
(b)
Consumers seeking LTSS who do not meet the above requirement but can benefit from home
and community-based services (HCBS) that can potentially be provided by other federal, state
or locally-funded programs.
