DHS License Update News

Changes are coming – please read

Current DHS license holders will be asked to update certain information. A letter from the DHS commissioner will be sent in May that explains the changes in detail and what action license holders must take.

The 2012 Legislature passed amendments that require DHS license holders to provide additional and updated information upon request of the commissioner. If you hold:

  • • At least one license issued directly by DHS, or
  • • One corporate Adult Foster Care license (the license holder does not reside in the residence)
  • you will receive a letter from DHS asking you to update or submit new information. This letter will not be sent to license holders whose only license is to provide services in the home where they currently live.

    DHS “License Holder Online Information Update System”

    To assist with this update request, DHS is pleased to announce a new “License Holder Online Information Update System.” It will allow existing license holders to update information using a secure website.

    Licensing data consolidation project

    The Licensing Division is creating a single license holder profile for each person, business or organization regardless of the number of licenses currently held. Read more about our data consolidation project and how this will impact DHS license holders.

    New eLicensing Application System Coming Soon

    An online application system is being developed that will replace the paper applications currently used to request a DHS license. The new online application system will be phased in, starting with new applications for home- and community-based services (HCBS) required to be licensed under Minnesota Statutes, chapter 245D. Those affected include current HCBS providers, including developmental disabilities (DD) service providers licensed under chapter 245B.

    If you are a current DHS license holder and you will be impacted by the new 245D legislation, you MUST complete the license holder information updates BEFORE you can use the e-Licensing system to comply with 245D licensure requirements.
