Provider Investigator Training

Providers shall ensure that all Tier 2 investigations are conducted by a certified Provider Investigator (PI). As part of the certification, Provider

Investigators must complete the required QuILTSS training. It is required for a provider to have a staff member or a business contract with a DIDD Certified Provider Investigator. DIDD will pay the intial $175 enrollment fee for one person to attend the training for each contracted provider in each region. Any susbequent or additional training needed to meet the requirement shall be at the expense of the provider. These requirements are in place for Home and Community Based Services (HCBS), Employment and Community First (ECF), CHOICES, Katie Beckett, 1915(c) waiver programs, and Intermediate Care Facilities (ICF) for Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities (ICF/IID) services.

Should you choose to contract with another provider to utilize their certified Provider Investigator, you will be required to follow the same process as any other Business Associate Agreement (BAA). The agreement must address Health Information Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and Title 33. All BAAs shall be submitted to DIDD.REMHelp@tn.gov. The BAA must include the identified Provider Investigator(s) selected.

Currently, the certified Provider Investigator grid is being created as staff are identified by their employer/provider as having previously been certified through Labor Relations Alternative (LRA) or once the Provider Investigator training has been completed via the QuILTSS Institute.

Every provider has an opportunity to send one employee at no cost. Each additional employee will be $60. The training consists of 8 Modules. It is self-paced but must be completed within 30 calendar days once started.
