Q: For a Supervised Independent Living Placement, what areas of the physical environment must be assessed? For instance, do roommates bedrooms need to be looked at if the non-minor dependent will not be spending any significant amount of time in that area?
A: Payment is tied to eligible physical placement. Eligible physical placement is based on the completion of the SILP Healthy and Safety Checklist and the Supervised Independent Living Plan (SILP) Approval and Placement Agreement. Please note that number 1 on the checklist states “bedroom/sleeping area used by the youth”. Thorough completion of these two documents is all that is needed to meet payment eligibility and SW/PO should follow these documents when completing their inspection.
