 Introduction/Instructions  

 
  INTRODUCTION:
This registry is provided by the Department of Health Services (DHS) as part of an ongoing effort to address federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) requirements for “state-wideness” in the management and provision of Medicaid waiver programs and services. To meet the federal mandates DHS has developed this web-based system to collect information about current and interested service providers in an on line registry.

APPLICABILITY:
DHS is requiring all agencies, organizations or individuals that are currently providing Medicaid waiver funded service(s) under agreements with the state or local/county waiver agencies to be listed on the registry. The requirement applies to all providers working with:
• Children served through the Children’s Long Term Support (CLTS) waivers;
• Adults with disabilities served through the Community Integration Program (CIP 1A/1B), Brain Injury (BIW) or the Community Options Program (COP-W/CIP II);
• Elders served by CIP II/COP-W.

The registration requirement does not apply to services provided for Family Care, IRIS or Partnership organization unless the provider seeks to serve waiver programs as well.

In addition to any current waiver service providers, any individual, agency or organization that is not currently providing services and wants to provide such service is instructed to register. The actual entry of provider information may be done by the provider entity/individual or by the local/county waiver agency.

IMPORTANT:
The registry may not be considered a directory of available, qualified providers. A listing in the registry does not confer DHS approval. Nor does the listing assure the provider will be selected. All providers must be qualified; meeting applicable licensing, certification, education/experience and any other standards described in the Medicaid Waiver Manual:

INSTRUCTIONS:
Providers will need to supply basic information about their services and service capacity; contact names, phone numbers and e-mail addresses; the geographic area they propose to serve and basic information about any special skills, experience or capacities they have. Providers who have questions should contact the local waiver agency. Waiver agency staff may direct agency concerns to the Bureau of Long Term Support.

Please note that there is a timeout limitation on each question. After 30 minutes of inactivity the registration will close itself.

Thank you for your cooperation.
