LifeWays COVID-19 Reporting

Pandemic Orders Impact

As you are all aware, MDHHS issued new Pandemic Orders on Sunday, November 15, 2020.  While we encourage you each to read and implement these orders, LifeWays is highlighting the following:

  • Healthcare facilities are not impacted and can continue to provide face to face services, utilizing current guidance regarding infection control.
  • When needs of the individual can be adequately address with telehealth, that remains an appropriate option
  • When needs of the individual require face to face services, providers must remember that Behavioral Health services are essential and must still be provided according to the IPOS.
  • In most cases, services cannot be reduced, suspended or terminated due solely to COVID-19. 
  • LifeWays encourages providers to use video for Telehealth Services rather than audio only whenever possible.
  • Everyone is welcome to report any situation where they have any of the above concerns using the form on the Provider page of the LifeWays website.
Daily Reporting Forms for LifeWays Network Providers

Effective immediately all providers are required to complete a daily COVID-19 report for each day of operation by the close of business.  Only new information needs to be added.  If a staff member or recipient identified to have been exposed, symptomatic, or positive according to the daily report a staff/recipient report also needs to be completed.
