What is ICF?
Intermediate Care Facility (ICF)
Intermediate Care Facilities for Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities (ICF/IID) are part of the long term care continuum that provides care for individuals with intellectual disabilities and/or related conditions. The services provided are based on each member’s needs, which vary according to age and level of intellectual disability and/or developmental disabilities. In order for a facility to participate in the program, it must meet federal and state standards in the areas of member protection, facility staffing, active treatment, member behavior, health care services, physical environment, and dietetic services. ICF/IID services in West Virginia are provided in small facilities throughout the state. Commonly, four to eight members reside in each ICF/IID.
