Providers will complete an APD Plan of Remediation (POR) form to address any “Not Met” standards cited by the QIO (Quality Improvement Organization, currently Qlarant), APD discovery or any other source. Providers scoring 100% on their Provider Discovery Review (PDR) are not to complete a POR.
A provider who has one or more “Not Met” standard(s), a Plan of Remediation is required for APD. The provider must type all information on the POR form. No handwritten forms will be accepted. A provider completed POR must be submitted to the designated APD Regional/Field Office staff. Providers who score 85% or better with no Alerts or billing discrepancies have the option of sending their signed final POR copy via US Mail or hand deliver to the designated APD Regional / Field Office. Providers who score 84% and below, have Alerts or billing discrepancies are required to meet face to face upon completion of the POR.
Provider must sign and date the POR regardless of PDR score or circumstance. Original ink signature is required by all parties. The APD Regional/Field Office will maintain the original signed copy POR and documented evidence of each item remediated as well as documentation of action taken when remediation is not completed.
