Star Agency Recognition

In 2006, DIDD (then DMRS) began to recognize provider agencies that were performing at a high quality level by acknowledging them publicly in a listing on the web site and reducing the frequency of quality assurance surveys from annually to every other year. 

Since the inception of this program, approximately 185 organizations have attained star status at least once.  Several providers have maintained star status since the beginning of the recognition.
