Oregon Oregon Health Authority, Public Health Division
Changes in Services Provided
An agency must obtain written approval from the Division prior to the implementation of the provision of additional services. When an agency applies for approval of additional services, the agency must provide evidence of:
Governing body approval of addition of the services and all revisions in agency policies pertaining to the new services;
The agency’s professional policy-making committee development and approval of all policies and procedures pertaining to the new services; and
Adherence to agency personnel policies and ORS Chapter 443 (Residential Care) and OAR chapter 333, division 027 by all individuals providing services through the agency. If a new service is provided under the designation of “other therapeutic services” and is not in a category of licensure/certification covered by Oregon law, the governing body must designate and approve standards of educational or technical qualifications of personnel providing the services.
An agency must notify the Division if it no longer provides a service listed on its current license.
