Intermediate Care Facilities for Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities (IFC/IID)
Intermediate Care Facilities for Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities (ICF/IID) is a State Plan covered service that serves individuals residing in institutions for people with intellectual disabilities or other related conditions. The Social Security Act specifies that these institutions must provide active treatment in addition to other Conditions of Participation. Many of the residents who are served by the program are also non-ambulatory, may have seizure disorders, behavioral problems, mental illness, can be visually or hearing impaired or have a combination of these conditions. ICF/IID’s must be certified and comply with all Federal Conditions of Participation in eight areas, including management, client protections, facility staffing, active treatment services, client behavior and facility practices, health care services, physical environment and dietetic services.
