|(a) For each applicant for delivery of services through
the CDS option as an employee, contractor, or vendor, the FMSA must:
(1) obtain and review documentation from the employer,
DR, or applicant that is required to verify each required qualification
of the applicant;
(2) notify the employer or DR of required documentation
(3) notify the employer or DR using the Verification
of Applicant Form (DADS Form 1729) within three working days after
receipt of all required documentation that the applicant is or is
not qualified to be hired or retained for delivery of the specific
service or services; and
(4) retain documentation on file if the applicant is
hired or retained by the employer or DR for service delivery.
(b) The FMSA must review documentation provided by
the employer, DR, applicant, or service provider, to determine if
the applicant or service provider meets eligibility, licensure, certification
or training requirements of the individual's program and government
regulations to deliver an intended service and that the planned service
meets those requirements.
(c) Before services can be delivered, the FMSA must
review Form 1724, New Service Provider Packet Cover Sheet, and any
required supporting documentation provided by the employer, DR, or
service provider and notify the employer, within two working days,
to withdraw an offer of employment if the service provider is not
eligible for employment based on results of reviewing the US Citizenship
and Immigration Services, Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification
or regulations of any government agency.
(d) Before services can be delivered, the FMSA must
verify an employee's or a contractor's social security number with
the Social Security Administration.
(e) The FMSA must not pay for services delivered if
the FMSA has not provided written notice to the employer or DR of
the service provider's eligibility even if the service provider is
determined later by the FMSA to be eligible.
(f) The FMSA must pay, but not claim reimbursement
through DADS, for services delivered if the FMSA notified the employer
or DR in error that the applicant was eligible.
(g) If an applicant has previously been terminated
by the employer or DR, the employer or DR and the FMSA must complete
the eligibility process as a new applicant.
