9/10/2013 UPDATE: Is a provider of “foster care services” not funded by one of the disability waivers required to obtain a 245D-HCBS program license in addition to the foster care license? No. A provider of “foster care services” that are not funded by one of the disability waivers (BI, CAC, or CADI), is not required to obtain a 245D-HCBS program license in addition to the child or adult foster care license for foster care services provided to person with disability, whether or not the person receives a difficulty of care rate in addition to GRH payments. The foster care license alone meets the licensure requirement under the Human Services Licensing Act, Chapter 245A. The requirement for the 245D-HCBS program license is a provider qualification required by the disability waiver plans, in addition to the foster care license. A provider is required to obtain the 245D-HCBS program license if the foster care services are funded by one of the disability waivers. This licensure requirement applies whether the provider operates a “family” or a “corporate” foster care site.
