(This amendment directs the Department of Medical Assistance Services to continue to allow, beyond the COVID-19 emergency, Medicaid agency-directed personal care and respite services to conduct telephonic supervisory visits by a licensed nurse. The department's forms would be used to document the interaction during these phone calls and to meet the standards already established by the department to include verbal consent, authorization, and confirmation of participation.)
