What is it?
Nursing Services are in addition to any Medicaid State Plan nursing services for which the individual qualifies. The need for these services must be documented in the individual's service plan. Nursing Services must be within the scope of the Illinois Nursing and Advanced Practice Nursing Act (225 ILSC 65). Nursing Services are only available to individuals in the Adult DD Waiver who are authorized for Home-Based Support Services (HBS).
Important: Individual Professionals ONLY may enroll to provide these services. Agencies cannot enroll as a provider of these services, but may be the billing agent for the individual professional.
How Do I Become A Provider?
If you are a professional who is an independent provider who will bill Department of Human Services (DHS) directly as the provider/vendor, and you will be paid directly by DHS under your own Social Security Number.
If you are a professional who works for an agency, is part of a group practice, limited liability corporation (LLC), or will have another entity or agency acting as a billing agent and the billing agent will be reimbursed by DHS for your services, you must follow the directions for identifying the other agent.
