Adult Day Care Licensure and Certification Requirements-Vermont Mobile App
In order for an adult day center to become certified to provide services through Department of Aging and Independent Living (DAIL)-administered programs, the center shall meet the Standards for Adult Day Services in Vermont.
How does it work?
Certification by the Department also fulfills the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) requirement that providers be “state certified” to be eligible for Medicare reimbursement. Medicaid Home and Community-Based Waiver adult day service providers must comply with these certification standards in addition to other waiver requirements specific to adult day services providers found in the Medicaid Home and Community-Based Services Waiver--Policies and Procedures Manual. Medicaid state plan adult day services providers also have to follow the certification standards. Technically, an adult day services provider does not need certification to open a center if services are not provided through DAIL-administered programs; however, the state is not aware of any such providers.
