Wisconsin DVR Policy Q & A


Does a case need to be kept open for 90 days from the last purchase before it can be closed as successfully rehabilitated?

[Opinion of DVR Policy Analyst]

The file should remain open for a minimum of 90 days after the employment goal has been achieved and the consumer no longer needs rehabilitation services (services that are needed for the achievement of the IPE goal have been provided).  If you provide a service that does not directly affect the stability/achievement of the employment goal e.g. work shoes, uniform, etc., during the 90 day follow along period, you do not have to start the 90 day clock over again.


Reminder:  90 days is the minimum follow along period.  If additional time is needed to ensure that the consumerís employment is stable, the follow along time should be extended.
