How to become a DIDD Provider

Overview of the New Provider Application Process: 

Please review the “How to Become a DIDD provider” document prior to submitting a DIDD New Provider Application.

New Provider Applications: 

Effective February 1, 2014, DIDD implemented a revised process for accepting new provider applications. Please note the Provider Expansion application process for current DIDD providers has not changed.

Applicant Forum Presentation

Applicant Forum

DIDD provides Applicant Forums for interested applicants. The Applicant Forums are interactive, informational sessions held prior to the beginning of the Open Enrollment period. The Forums allow an opportunity for applicants to discuss the application process and provider qualifications. We recommend that you attend an Applicant Forum prior to submitting the New Provider Application for Long Term Services or Support Co-ordination. A list of dates for the Forums are listed on our website. Attending the Forum is not mandatory; however, it may be helpful to applicants seeking information about DIDD and for clarification about the process for submitting a DIDD New Provider Application. The applicant is welcome to attend any forum date listed below. For your convenience, the same topics are presented at both forums.
