The Provider Monitoring process is designed for:
- Entry into the provider network
- The evaluation of service providers against quantitative and qualitative measures
- For determining advanced placement status
The provider monitoring process is used to monitor both Medicaid and State-funded behavioral health services.
Review Information and Tools
Routine monitoring consists of a routine review and a post-payment review.
- For Licensed Independent Professionals (LIPs) that includes the LIP Review Tool and the LIP Post-Payment Review Tool.
- For provider agencies, the selection of tools is determined by the type services provided.
- The Routine Monitoring Tool is used except when the agency provides Unlicensed AFL services, in which case the Unlicensed AFL Review Tool is used.
- The specific post-payment review tool(s) to be used is based on the combination of services included in the sample.
- For those services that DHSR-MHL surveys on an annual basis (i.e., residential services and opioid treatment services), only a post-payment review is done.
Refer to the Instructions and Overview sections in each workbook for a detailed description of how the workbooks are organized and for more information on how all the component parts of the review fit together.
