The Federal Programs staff provides oversight, training, and technical assistance to contract providers who utilize the Alabama Medicaid Rehabilitative Services option through DYS. DYS also utilizes the Medicaid Federal Programs Reviewers (FPR’s) to assist the Federal Programs Division to monitor Medicaid eligible providers. They FPR’s are contracted through Troy University and are supervised by the director of Federal Programs. Together with the Federal programs staff, the Federal Programs office works with DYS approved Medicaid providers to assist Medicaid eligible recipients in gaining access to needed medical and rehabilitative services. Medicaid Federal Programs Reviewers (FPR’S) assist the Federal Programs Division to monitor Medicaid eligible providers who provides Medicaid services to eligible DYS youth who are placed in specific community programs. They review youth’s records for compliance in accordance to Chapter 105. FPR’s are required to monitor records and report back to DYS staff their findings of record compliance. They review youth’s records, to include Intakes, Treatment Plans, and other service documentation. DYS expects the FPR’s to communicate concerns about service delivery, record compliance and care of the youth’s quality of life to the DYS Federal Programs staff.
