A: There is an exception to policy to allow current providers until January 31st, 2019 to be incompliance with the new rule.
Q: How does the enhanced background check apply to contracted/3rd party staff?
A: Providers who sub-contract certain functions of their practice must have a Business Associate Agreement with the sub-contractor. This will suffice in lieu of the enhanced background check and applies to agreements with MAT providers. If you have administrative functions (ex. billing) that are outside the State of Idaho, they must have a background check in the State in which they reside.
Q: Will the State help to absorb the costs associated with the new background checks?
A: No, unfortunately this is a cost to the Provider. BPA Health has made an exception to policy which spreads the time frame to comply into the new year. This should ease the time to comply burden, and allow Providers to budget into the next year.
Q: What changes for CARF certified agencies?
A: At this point, no changes are planned.
