D. Subcontracting for Waiver Services

Subcontracting is defined as the approved provider's use of another agency to fulfill the responsibilities and services delegated to the approved provider in the Service Plan.

Subcontracting in the NHTD waiver is allowed for the following services only:

  • Environmental Modifications (E-mods);
  • Assistive Technology (AT);
  • Community Transitional Services (CTS);
  • Moving Assistance; and
  • Congregate and Home Delivered Meals.

For these services, subcontracting may occur when the approved provider cannot complete the specified tasks with their resources. However, the provider is responsible for supervising the completion of the specified task in accordance with the Service Plan (SP), assuring that all workers are skilled or appropriately licensed, and determining that the completed task meets State and Federal codes, if appropriate.
