SECTION 679.40 SCORING THE DON FOR RESPITE CASES
Section 679.40 Scoring the DON for Respite Cases
In order to be eligible for respite services, the individual must receive 29 points in Part A of the DON, which includes the 10 points from the Mini-Mental Status Examination, as appropriate. No points are necessary in Part B as respite services are to provide relief to a caregiver who normally provides all care for an individual which is at no cost to DHS.
