Social Adult Day Care Certification
The Department of Health (DOH), in conjunction with the Office of the Medicaid Inspector General (OMIG) and the New York State Office for the Aging (NYSOFA) have established a new Certification requirement for Social Adult Day Care (SADC) entities that wish to contract with Managed Long-Term Care (MLTC) plans.
This new Certification has been implemented in order to ensure those entities involved in the delivery of SADC services are in compliance with relevant rules and regulations.
The goal is to ensure eligible individuals have access to safe SADC service settings.
Completion of the Certification will attest to a SADCs compliance with Title 9 NYCRR section 6654.20, as required under Article VII, section C of the Managed Long Term Care model contract.
- A Certification must be completed for each SADC site by June 30, 2016, and annually thereafter. New sites may certify at any time during the year.
- The Certification must be completed electronically, via OMIG’s website:https://www.omig.ny.gov/sadc-certification
The SADC must print and retain a copy of the confirmation as proof of completion. The SADC must also provide a copy of this confirmation to the MLTC plan. (Upon completion, the confirmation will be automatically sent to the email address provided on the electronic Certification form).
Any SADC seeking to enter into a new contract with Elderplan would need to successfully complete the Certification first, and provide a copy of the confirmation page to Elderplan as proof of completion.
