CLS services are face-to-face services, and as such, services cannot be provided when a consumer is asleep (except in very rare and unusual situations).
CLS is not meant to be a cleaning/ housekeeping service. The consumer must be directly involved in the tasks that are being performed by CLS staff, and it must be written in the consumer’s plan of service as a treatment goal to be billed to Medicaid.
CLS services are not meant to monitor, supervise, or provide companionship to consumers. CLS services are meant to provide skills training and personal assistance to help increase a consumer’s level of independence in their home and their community.
CLS services are not meant to be provided in locations outside of the consumer’s local community.
Transportation mileage to and from medical appointments is not a covered CLS service (mileage should be requested through your local DHS worker as needed).
CLS cannot be provided while a consumer is in an institutional setting such as the hospital, nursing home, or jail. CLS is provided in community settings (for example the consumer’s home, library, grocery store, etc).
