Intermediate Care Facilities for Individuals with Developmental Disabilities (ICF/IID)

Intermediate Care Facilities for Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities –(ICF/IID)– for children and adults are licensed by the DBHDS Office of Licensing.  A provider must be certified by the Virginia Department of Health, Office of Licensing and Certification.  Contact information may be found at the following link:

Single Point of Entry:

Effective May 1, 2018, The Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services (DBHDS) implemented the Single Point of Entry process in collaboration with The Department of Medical Assistance Services (DMAS).  This process mandates that all individuals seeking placement in an ICF/IID must be screened by DBHDS utilizing the Virginia Individual Developmental Disabilities Eligibility Survey (VIDES).  It is important that this process is followed by all facilities planning to bill Medicaid for services.  

Children’s ICF/IID Initiative:

DBHDS closely collaborates with the children’s facilities in Virginia to ensure that families are properly educated regarding service options available in the community.  The Family Resource Consultants maintain ongoing contact with families, Community Services Boards, and facility staff to offer support and guidance regarding discharge planning and navigating community options.
