The Bureau of Developmental Disabilities Services, within the Division of Disability and Rehabilitative Services, is required pursuant to 460 IAC 6-7-2 to ensure that service providers approved under Indiana’s home-and community-based services waivers are compliant with all statutes, rules, regulations and requirements.
The Bureau of Quality Improvement Services supports BDDS by monitoring providers’ compliance with all statutes, rules, regulations and requirements.
BDDS, or its designee, within the DDRS is required to re-verify all BDDS approved waiver providers. BQIS has been designated to facilitate the provider reverification process. The purpose of the provider reverification process is to ensure, on an on-going basis, providers are ‘fit for business’ by validating basic compliance with statutes, rules, regulations, and requirements in accordance with the Provider Reverification for Accredited Waiver Services policy (2020-01-R-001, eff. 2/9/2020, revised v02_October 4, 2021). The policy is available on the DDRS Policies webpage.
BQIS will rollout the provider reverification process for accredited providers the week of April 18, 2022. The process will be initiated by BQIS via an email to the provider.
BQIS is a program of the Division of Disability and Rehabilitative Services whose mission is to ensure quality supports are aligned with person-centered principles by leading strategic change that empowers people to live their good life.
