BECOMING A DIRECT SERVICE PROVIDER
AAANM establishes Purchase of Service (POS) Agreements with Providers in order to serve participants of the MI Choice Waiver and ACLS Care Management Programs. Services are purchased on a pre-set, per-unit basis according to an established Provider agreement and the participant’s Plan of Care.
Some of the most frequently purchased services include: Homemaking, Personal Care, In-Home Respite, Home Delivered Meals, Private Duty Nursing, Personal Emergency Response Systems, and Adult Day Care.
How to Become a POS Provider:
AAANM brings new Providers into our pool each October. Applications of consideration are accepted throughout the year and are reviewed each July. Interviews are then scheduled in order to ensure the Provider’s ability to comply with standards.
A POS agreement at times other than October when:
- There are insufficient providers to meet the need.
- A program Participant has an established relationship with a Provider who is not currently in our pool.
Interested Providers should complete the Provider Application Form. Questions can be directed to the AAANM Provider Network Manager at (231) 947-8920 or 1-800-442-1713.
Please note that inclusion in the AAANM Provider pool does not assure referrals or a specific volume of service.
POS Provider Criteria:
All potential Providers must be able to comply with services standards set by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services and the Michigan Aging and Adult Services Agency (AASA). AAANM monitors compliance with these standards through Provider Audits.
