Part C Notice
Many practices caring for pediatric members with developmental delay diagnoses are familiar with Part C Early Intervention Services, known officially as Early Intervention Services for Infant and Toddler Connections of VA. This program encourages these pediatric members to be directed to DMAS certified providers of PT, OT and ST.
Qualifying children who are less than three years of age in need of PT, OT or ST services for developmental delay are guided to certified providers using the Central Point of Entry contact at (800) 234-1448. From here, the family and professionals work together to develop an Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP). The IFSP is a plan of care for needed services.
Those children using the Central Point of Entry, who have completed an IFSP and accepted Part C Services, move directly to a certified provider. Should a family choose not to use the certified providers of Part C, the child may be referred to VPHP for authorization of medically necessary PT, OT or ST provided by a VPHP network provider.
Offices requesting services through VPHP, where the IFSP is not verified, will be contacted for redirection to the Central Point of Entry or to confirm that the family has opted to utilize VPHP network providers and not a Part C Provider.
