TITLE 59: MENTAL HEALTH
CHAPTER IV: DEPARTMENT OF HUMAN SERVICES
PART 132 MEDICAID COMMUNITY MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES PROGRAM
SECTION 132.90 PROVIDER SITES
Section 132.90 Provider Sites
For the purpose of this Part, provider sites are discrete locations, other than a licensed foster family home, that are owned or leased by a provider for the purpose of providing Medicaid community mental health services.
a) The provider shall use sites deemed accessible in accordance with the Americans With Disabilities Act of 1990, as amended, and the Illinois Accessibility Code and the ADA Accessibility Guidelines, whichever is more stringent. The Certifying State Agency may require specific accommodations to meet the needs of clients served at a particular site as determined on a case-by-case basis. Providers must maintain a written policy for reasonable modifications for the provision of services to clients unable to access the provider's sites due to physical inaccessibility.
b) Provider sites shall be in compliance with approved State and local ordinances and codes relating to fire, building and sanitation, and health and safety requirements as follows:
1) Fire safety in accordance with rules of the Office of the State Fire Marshal at 41 Ill. Adm. Code 100.
2) Building requirements shall be in compliance with the uniform or national building code adopted by the local or county ordinance. Documentation may include a written statement from an electrician or licensed architect stating that the site is in compliance with applicable electrical codes and a written statement from a licensed plumber or licensed architect stating that the site is in compliance with applicable plumbing codes.
c) To ensure the sanitation, health and safety of the sites, the provider shall:
1) Develop and maintain a written external and internal emergency disaster plan, including a fire evacuation plan. External disasters include such occurrences as tornados, earthquakes and floods. Internal disasters include such occurrences as fire and heating and cooling systems failures.
2) Designate space, equipment, and furnishings for the provision of services which shall be conducive to privacy, comfort and safety. This includes such aspects as child size furniture in children's programs, rooms sufficiently large to accommodate groups or families, and doors that close to afford privacy.
d) If a provider offering only non-residential services is accredited and is in compliance with this Section at the time of recertification, on-site inspections may not be required for recertification purposes. Sites offering residential services are subject to an on-site inspection for recertification. All new sites shall be required to undergo on-site inspections.
e) If a certified site is licensed by DCFS as a child care institution or group home, an on-site inspection of that site may not be required for recertification purposes. The site must be in good standing with DCFS and must be in compliance with this Section at the time of recertification. All new sites shall be required to undergo on-site inspection.
f) The Certifying State Agency shall not review the requirements in this Section if the provider delivers Medicaid services exclusively in locations other than provider sites.
