FAQ: Texas PASRR IDT meeting questions

We’ve worked with DADS to get answers to your top IDT meeting questions

On July 7, SimpleLTC hosted a free webinar for several hundred Texas SNFs and PASRR specialists. Our special guest speaker was Cathy Belliveau, Senior PASRR Program Specialist with DADS. During the 90-minute training, participants asked dozens of specific questions about the IDT requirements. Cathy answered many of those questions during the session, but could not cover them all due to time limitations.

Here’s the good news: We’ve worked with DADS to get answers to all your IDT meeting questions.
