This policy is established for the purpose of compliance with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) conflict of interest requirements. It is intended to mitigate conflict of interest that may exist where home and community based Medicaid services are provided. Participants can maintain control of services and conflicts of interest may be mitigated by securing a Durable Power of Attorney (DPOA) or separating the “employer of record” from the “manager/worker” and the use of administrative firewalls to separate the two entities by appointing a designated representative to perform to direct the participant’s HCBS services.
