The Department of Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (DIDD) Provider Manual (Chapter 5.8 a and b ) addresses required orientation for both not-for-profit and for-profit providers. Providers may still meet the orientation requirement by attending a DIDD new provider orientation within ninety (90) calendar days of assuming office or complete the online equivalent.
The online materials include PowerPoint Presentations, handouts, etc. Any questions about specific subject matter can be addressed by the contact person listed next to the topic of interest.
IMPORTANT NOTE: If you choose to review the online New Provider Orientation materials prepared by DIDD in lieu of attending the New Provider Orientation Class, please review the information carefully. Upon completion of your review, sign, date and retain a copy of the New Provider Orientation Acknowledgment Form, as it must be available for review by Quality Assurance staff during future surveys. New Provider Orientation Acknowledgment Form
A regional provider orientation program is presented by staff in each Regional Office. It is required that the provider executive director, chief executive officer or other administrator responsible for executing contracts and board chair (as applicable) attend the regional orientation programs. Existing providers who wish to attend are also welcome.
