Disability packet (VET)
The disability packet is used to report additional disability codes (E615) for a student and changes through time to a student’s disabilities. The first disability code (E615) for a student is reported as part of the student packet. A provider may create as many additional disability packets as necessary to add disability codes (E615) for a student or to report effective dates (E609 and E610) that may apply to a student’s disability. When the first disability code (E615) is reported for a student in a student packet, a disability effective from date (E609) is automatically generated based on the date the student packet was first reported. Providers may amend this date.
Providers are required to report a disability packet only when a student within the scope of the student packet notifies the provider that:
- they have a disability but this was not reported through the original student packet
- they have two or more disabilities, or
- there has been a change to their disability status.
