Ariz. Admin. Code § R6-6-2109 - Consumer Choice

Current through Register Vol. 27, No. 52, December 24, 2021

A. In support of a consumer-responsive service delivery system, the Division shall provide a consumer or the consumer's representative the opportunity to express and document their interest in utilizing services from a specific Qualified Vendor or Individual Independent Provider through the ISP process.
B. At the annual review of the ISP, the consumer or the consumer's representative may express a preference to utilize a different Qualified Vendor, without explanation. The Division shall accommodate the request to the extent appropriate and practical, as determined solely by the Division.
C. If the consumer or the consumer's representative expresses a preference to utilize a different Qualified Vendor between annual reviews of the ISP, the consumer or the consumer's representative must state in writing or must report to the support coordinator, for incorporation into ISP notes, the rationale for changing providers and a description of the opportunities given to the current Qualified Vendor to address the consumer's concerns. The consumer may change Individual Independent Providers at any time.
D. The Division shall accommodate the requested change if the consumer and the current Qualified Vendor are unable to resolve the consumer's concerns, the change is reasonable, and another Qualified Vendor or Individual Independent Provider, identified through the Vendor Call for Services process or the consumer's or the consumer's representative's choice, indicates that it is available to provide services for the consumer.
