New Provider Information

Enrollment Information

Quality SCL Providers are needed in all areas of community-based supports. Supported Employment, Community Access, Shared Living and Technology Assisted residential providers are currently in the greatest demand throughout Kentucky. We invite you to actively explore the application process.

SCL New Provider Development Specialists offer an orientation at least every quarter. The required orientation is designed to answer your questions about becoming a certified SCL Provider and will provide you with step-by-step directions for assembling an enrollment packet.

For more information about topics covered in orientation, please click the link below.

After initial contact has been made the next step is to complete the prerequisites for New Provider Orientation and then register for orientation. During the interim, you will find it very helpful to visit the Related Links to the right and should become familiar with the SCL regulations.

Certification Information

The Division of Developmental and Intellectual Disabilities (DDID) certifies provider agencies participating in the Supports for Community Living Waiver. Provider certification is based on regulations established by the Department for Medicaid Services.

Providers may be certified in all or some of the following support and service areas. Click on a service to view its description.

If DDID processes the enrollment packet and certifies a company, the Department for Medicaid Services will issue a provider number. After a provider number has been issued, a provider can initiate services.

Enrollment Packet

The following is a list of required items and documents that are needed to complete your enrollment packet. This should be submitted after you have successfully completed the New Provider Orientation.

  • The credentials of the executive director.
