The individual health plan (IHP) meeting was established to assess the ongoing needs of the medically complex child. A review of the IHP is completed every three (3) months within the region. The medically complex liaison, Commission for Children with Special Health Care Needs (CCSHCN) nurse, Managed Care Organization (MCO) nurses, care providers and others who are involved in the child’s medical care should attend this meeting. The IHP is to be updated every six (6) months.
The CCSHCN nurse may utilize the DPP-104C Medically Complex Monthly Report in preparation and development of the child’s IHP.
During the initial IHP meeting and once every six (6) months thereafter, the medically complex service team:
- Develops an IHP;
- Reviews current medical services and medical providers;
- Incorporates the current and potential medical and rehabilitative needs of the child, and awareness of long-term needs of the child into the child’s care and treatment;
- Identifies additional services to meet the child’s needs;
- Discusses transition planning when applicable; and
- Assesses whether the child’s needs continue to warrant a medically complex designation.
