Level of Care Policy and Process Changes

DMS has begun new project to transform its level of care (LOC) policies and processes for nursing facility, hospice and intermediate care facility for individuals with intellectual disabilities services. This project will transition the existing paper-based LOC processes to a technology system where providers will be able to electronically submit their LOCs through a self-service portal.

DMS is hosting a virtual webinar to share the upcoming LOC policy and process changes with providers. This webinar will review changes to the existing process and policies, as well as new policies that will be instituted as a part of the LOC transformation. DMS strongly encourages attendance, as the content will prepare providers to transition to the new processes.

The webinar is offered on two days to best accommodate providers' schedules. The webinar content will be the same on both dates. The webinar lobby will be open 30 minutes prior to each webinar.

Wednesday, Aug. 23, 2017 
10 a.m. - noon, Eastern Time

Thursday, Aug. 31, 2017
10 a.m. - noon, Eastern Time
