Provider Remediation Plans

Now that the provider self-assessment process has been completed and the State has completed its initial review of provider remediation plans, the Utah HCBS Setting Transition Plan identifies additional action items.

  1. The State will provide guidance within 60 calendar days of the receipt of Provider Remediation Plans that do not fully demonstrate how compliance will be achieved.
  2. For providers that had a site validation visit conducted, there may be an amended or updated Remediation Plan attached as a result of the visit and/or policy review.

  3. Providers are given the opportunity to remediate issues and come into compliance within timeframes agreed upon by the provider and the State.

Completion of the revised Remediation Plan is mandatory and must be completed and returned to the State via within 30 days of notification.

For technical assistance or further information on the Provider Remediation plans email: HCBSSettings@utah.gov

New Provider Attestation Form

Any new providers and locations delivering HCBS must be in compliance with the Settings Rule prior to the delivery of Medicaid HCBS services. New Medicaid providers will be required to supply one (or both) of the following attestations depending on what settings they operate:

  1. Non-Residential Attestation Form
  2. Residential Attestation Form

Provider Compliance Tools

  1. Provider Remediation Plan

    During the months of January and February of 2018, providers were emailed their self-assessment results and all the settings they will need to complete a remediation plan for. Remediation plan templates were generated for each setting specifying which self-assessment indicators required additional information or a corrective action plan to demonstrate compliance.
