Intermediate Care Facility (ICF/IID)
Intermediate Care Facility for Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities (ICF/IID), is a Medicaid-certified program, serving 6-13 individuals in a residential group home setting with 24-hour shift staff. Individuals are evaluated, and an individualized treatment plan is developed to assist each individual function at their greatest ability.
ICF/IID is different from HCS services, in that, an individual who has not yet received his/her HCS slot from the local Mental Retardation Authority (MRA), as long as he/she has been diagnosed as having intellectual disabilities, can receive residential services, assuming there are vacant ICF beds available.
The individual must have a diagnosis of mental retardation or related conditions, be in need of and able to benefit from the active treatment provided in the 24-hour supervised residential setting and meet the Medicaid eligibility criteria and the Level of Care determination criteria.
