DHS Identifies Settings That Must Complete a Phase 2 Provider Attestation
On February 27, 2018 by Bobbie Guidry
The Minnesota Department of Human Services (DHS) has posted updated information on Phase 2 of the Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) provider attestation process on the transition plan for HCBS settings webpage.
Phase 2 will focus on a second wave of providers with new settings in 2017 who have not already submitted an attestation, including settings that have had a change of ownership.
DHS identified 222 new settings with new claims or licenses, from the effects of isolating survey or a change in ownership during 2017. These are residential settings in which providers deliver services paid for by BI, CAC, CADI or DD waivers, and group or cluster people with disabilities.
DHS assigned an ID number to each new setting. Providers may view the Phase 2 List of Provider Settings to locate your assigned ID number to complete an attestation using the HCBS Provider Attestation form, DHS-7176-ENG.
Phase 2 providers must complete the HCBS provider attestations by April 13.
If you completed a Phase 1 attestation and are not on the Phase 2 list, you do not need to complete another provider attestation.
