(a) The division or the division's designee shall provide care plan counseling to a recipient, or to an individual who may become a recipient, who appears to require placement in a long-term care facility before that individual is admitted to the long-term care facility. At a minimum, care plan counselors shall provide an individual with information about alternative methods of meeting the individual's need for long-term care.
(b) The division or the division's designee shall prepare and submit the initial form required by 7 AAC 43.210(a) (3) or (b)(1) for any individual the division provides with care plan counseling.
(c) The division may exempt individuals from care plan counseling in specific geographic regions of the state if the division determines care plan counseling is impractical because of the low volume of nursing facility admissions, the lack of alternative methods of meeting long-term care needs, or the inability to provide care plan counseling on a timely basis. If an individual in a geographic region is exempted from care plan counseling, then the long-term facility that admits the individual must meet the requirements of 7 AAC 43.210.
(d) An acute care (hospital or inpatient psychiatric) or long-term care facility shall inform the division or the division's designee that an individual is in need of care plan counseling, in a form or format required by the division, unless exempt under (c) of this section.
