I/DD LICENSING

Walk-Through (24-Hour Residential)

A physical walk-through inspection of the home or apartment after an initial application for a 24-hour home license. Homes must meet minimum physical requirements per the Oregon Administrative Rule (OAR). Any required alterations to the home must be completed and confirmed prior to issuance of the license. (Walk-through for licensure of an individual home site is not scheduled until an agency has fully completed Medicaid Agency Certification).

120-Day

A full licensing review that occurs after initial licensure and individuals have moved into the home. Reviews include observation, interviews, inspections of individual care documentation and physical evaluation of the site.

Renewal (24-Hour Residential)

A full licensing review conducted prior to the expiration of the 24-hour license (renewed every two years). Reviews include observation, interviews, inspections of individual care documentation and physical evaluation of the site.

Quality Assurance

Quality assurance reviews are completed at a minimum of every five years for supported living and employment services endorsements based on the previous licensing date.

Follow-up

Required when a home is not in substantial compliance with health and safety issues at the 120-day review, renewal or quality assurance reviews for supported living or employment.

Re-certification

Every five years a review is required for Medicaid providers, brokerages and provider organizations.

Complaint

A complaint review is directed by the licensing manager based on information from an outside source (CDDP, OAAPI, program staff, family, etc.) that services are not being provided or an individual’s health or safety is at risk or abuse/neglect may be occurring. The review will be unannounced. The review is a focused review on the specific licensing issues of concern but could lead to a full review based on what issues are found.
