PPS Lead New Corporation (NewCo) Process and Guidance

During the DSRIP Demonstration Period, PPS lead entities may decide to pursue different corporate structures to facilitate DSRIP implementation. For this purpose, the NYS DOH will permit current PPS Lead entities ONLY to submit new corporation VAP exception applications for safety net designation. PPS may submit to DOH for consideration their proposal and rationale for the new legal corporation. The requirements for any new PPS corporation are delineated in the PPS NewCo VAP Exception Process guidance issued on September 11, 2015. Such applications will be reviewed by DOH and then posted for 30 day public comment before submitting to CMS for review and approval.

We are pleased to share with you the following attached documents. For more information regarding Vital Access Provider (VAP) Exceptions, please visit http://www.health.ny.gov/health_care/medicaid/redesign/dsrip/safety_net_definition.htm
