PC&A will determine whether the state’s standards are in accordance with the Code of Federal Regulations and accurately target the severely disabled individuals with an Intellectual Disability or Related Condition and assure an objective and justifiable assessment is in place.
Following the Needs Assessment, PC&A will assist with writing eligibility standards. Development of psychometrically based standards will create an equitable opportunity for all applicants.
Additionally, PC&A will help to develop a battery of psychological tests and assist with training of an independent cadre of evaluators. This will result in an objective, Independent Psychological Evaluation (IPE).
PC&A will oversee the program and assure that the system functions as intended, is person-centered, and is consistent across evaluators. Necessary oversight will be provided to ensure that only eligible applicants receive benefits.
PC&A will develop and implement a System of Quality Management to assure that the quality of services is always improving and specified standards are met.
