(1) it has been determined that the individual's needs can best be met through partial or full retirement from:
(i) participation in a day training and habilitation service; or
(ii) the use of services during the day in the individual's home environment; and
(2) an individualized plan has been developed with designated outcomes that:
(i) address the support needs and desires contained in the person-centered plan or individual support plan; and
(ii) include goals that focus on community integration as appropriate for the individual.
(c) When establishing a rate for these services, the commissioner shall also consider an individual recipient's needs as identified in the individual support plan and the person's need for active treatment as defined under federal regulations.
