Providers of services to people with developmental disabilities may be self-employed (called independent providers) or agencies. DODD certifies both agency and independent providers of services. Applicants must meet qualifications, pay a non-refundable fee, and include supporting documentation with their application.
An independent provider or agency is prohibited from providing any service until certification is obtained from DODD.
Waiver certification applications for both agency and independent providers continue to be accepted by DODD through PSM at this time.
