Quality Assurance on Compliance Action Plans (CAP)

DDD is reviewing all 14 day CAPs as they are submitted. In addition, DDD is beginning to reach out to providers to select a sample of completed CAPs to perform a quality assurance review. DDD contract staff will be reaching out to providers to request the providers submit evidence of CAP completion and review the evidence to confirm compliance. To be clear, NO evidence should be submitted unless DDD staff request it. Generally for CAP compliance, providers need to return the CAPs indicating what they are going to do to address compliance and then return CAPs a second time, confirming that they have completed the actions they indicated they were going to take. If a provider completes the CAP early, please sign and return the CAP indicating in the email the CAP is fully completed. DDD anticipates reviewing 1-5 sites per provider with sites with CAPs based on number of sites.
