CMS Releases ICF/IID Visitation Guidance

COVID-19

This week, CMS released a memo on new visitation guidance at Intermediate Care Facilities for Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities (ICF/IIDs) and Psychiatric Residential Treatment Facilities (PRTFs) during COVID-19. According to CMS, the guidance provides ways an ICF/IID and PRTF can more safely facilitate in-person visitation and address the psychosocial needs of the residents.  
 
CMS also encourage all ICF/IIDs and PRTFs to monitor the CDC website for information and resources and contact their health department when needed. The memo can be found here​
