Enrolling as a Qualified Service Provider

Qualified Service Providers or QSPs are individuals or agencies that provide services to clients who receive services funded by North Dakota Health and Human Services.

People who qualify for home and community-based services can choose among available qualified service providers that offer competitively priced services.

QSPs are independent contractors that have met certain competency standards required to provide services to eligible clients.

The new QSP enrollment portal is here! Visit the portal now to start your enrollment application.

Claims guidance for when members lose and regain Medicaid eligibility 
On April 1, 2023, North Dakota began verifying coverage for regular Medicaid individuals whose coverage was temporarily extended due to the COVID-19 public health emergency.

Some Medicaid members may lose coverage if they do not return information that is needed to process their renewal.

If members lose and then regain eligibility, QSPs will have 180 days from the date the member’s eligibility was updated to resubmit claims that were previously denied because of no member eligibility.

QSPs can verify member eligibility by:

  1. Logging into ND Health Enterprise MMIS https://mmis.nd.gov/portals/wps/portal/EnterpriseHome. Click on the Member tab, then select “Check Eligibility."
  2. Using the Automated Voice Response System (AVRS); Call (877) 328-7098, Option 1.
  3. Calling the Provider Relations Call Center at (701) 328-7098 or (877) 328-7098.

As a QSP you are required to revalidate (renew) your enrollment every five years instead of every two years!

Why revalidate?

Revalidations must be done to maintain QSP enrollment. If you do not revalidate your QSP enrollment, it may result in automatic closure of your QSP enrollment. Payments will be stopped if ND Medicaid does not get your completed revalidation packet by the due date.

How will I know if I need to revalidate?

A notice of revalidation will be sent to you before your QSP enrollment expires. Agency revalidation will be sent by email. All other revalidation information will be sent by mail. It is your responsibility to ensure all forms are correct and returned in a timely manner for processing. 

How do I revalidate?

Revalidations require much of the same paperwork you used for your initial enrollment. You must complete and submit a new forms packet and all required documentation. Some services require additional forms to complete revalidation. Make sure you are using the most current forms version!

Specific changes can be found in the Agency, Individual, Family Home Care and Family Personal Care QSPs handbooks.

Agency Foster Homes for Adults (AFHA)

Aging Services is responsible for licensing Agency Foster Homes for Adults (AFHA). The purpose of an AFHA is to provide a residential setting where four or fewer Medicaid waiver recipients live together and are receiving Residential Habilitation or Community Support services. All referrals to receive Residential Habilitation or Community Support services in an AFHA must go through the Aging & Disability Resource Link (ADRL) intake process by calling phone #855-462-5465, and then be assigned to a  HCBS case manager to determine eligibility for services in this setting.

Providers interested in developing an AFHA should contact the ADRL.  This setting can only be licensed to assist Medicaid eligible individuals. An AFHA cannot accept individuals who private pay for services.
