      Sec. 46a-11f. (Formerly Sec. 19a-458e). Evaluation of person's ability to pay. Review of plan of protective services. (a) Concurrent with the implementation of any protective services for which payment is required, an evaluation shall be undertaken by the commissioner regarding the ability of the person with mental retardation to pay for the protective services. If the person is so able, procedures for reimbursement for the cost of providing the services shall be initiated. If it is determined that the person is not capable of paying for such services, the services shall be provided in accordance with policies and procedures established by the Commissioner of Mental Retardation.

      (b) Subsequent to the initial provision of protective services, the Department of Mental Retardation shall review each case, including meeting with the person with mental retardation at least once every six months, to determine whether continuation or modification of the services is warranted. Said department shall advise the director relative to the continuation of protective services for each such person with mental retardation. The commissioner may terminate protective services upon the request of the person with mental retardation or his guardian, pursuant to section 46a-11e, or upon agreement by the commissioner and the director that such services are no longer required.

      (c) In performing the duties set forth in sections 46a-11c to 46a-11g, inclusive, the director may request the assistance of the staffs and resources of all appropriate state departments, agencies, commissions and local health directors, and may utilize any other public or private agencies, groups or individuals who are appropriate and may be available.
