Title 7 . Health and Social Services
Chapter 81 . Electronic and Other Records Containing Behavioral Health Information
Section 60. Issuance of a provider agreement

7 AAC 81.060. Issuance of a provider agreement

(a) If a potential provider is interested in entering into a provider agreement with the department, the potential provider must send a letter to the department contact person identified in the public notice issued under 7 AAC 81.050, expressing interest, and must include the documentation required by the department to verify eligibility for a provider agreement. A potential provider may send a letter expressing interest to the department at any time.

(b) The department will verify the eligibility of a potential provider for a provider agreement. If the department determines that a potential provider is eligible, the department will prepare a provider agreement and forward it to the provider for signature.

(c) If the department determines that the potential provider is ineligible for a provider agreement, the department will notify the provider, in writing within 30 days, of the reasons the provider was determined to be ineligible. If the potential provider later becomes eligible for a provider agreement, the provider may resubmit a letter expressing interest at any time.

(d) Unless the department determines approval to be necessary to protect public health and welfare, the department will disapprove an agreement regardless of eligibility if

(1) the potential provider has a history of noncompliance with grant requirements under 7 AAC 78 or this chapter; or

(2) monitoring and evaluation of the potential provider in the past has shown that the services provided did not meet applicable quality standards of the grant program.

(e) The signed provider agreement is a contract between the department and the provider.
