How to become a DDA provider in Maryland

To become a DDA (Developmental Disabilities Administration) provider in Maryland, you need to follow these general steps:

  1. Determine the type of services you want to provide: DDA provides various services to individuals with developmental disabilities, including residential, day, and employment services. Decide which services you want to provide, based on your qualifications and interests.

  2. Obtain necessary qualifications and certifications: Depending on the type of services you want to provide, you may need to obtain certain qualifications and certifications. For example, if you want to provide residential services, you will need to obtain a Residential Service Agency license from the Maryland Department of Health.

  3. Register with the Maryland DDA Provider Enrollment Unit: The Provider Enrollment Unit is responsible for processing provider applications and approving provider enrollment. You can submit an online application to the Provider Enrollment Unit through the DDA ePortal.

  4. Complete DDA training: DDA requires all providers to complete certain trainings, such as Abuse and Neglect, Medication Administration, and CPR/First Aid. You can find more information about required trainings on the DDA website.

  5. Pass background checks: All DDA providers are required to pass background checks, including fingerprinting and criminal background checks.

  6. Obtain liability insurance: DDA requires all providers to have liability insurance.

  7. Maintain compliance with DDA regulations: DDA providers must comply with all applicable regulations, including reporting requirements, quality assurance, and health and safety standards.
