Denial of Certification
Any provider agency denied initial certification of qualifications or recertification for the provision of Community Care Program services shall be afforded the opportunity to submit another request to the Illinois Department on Aging after a 60-day period of time from issuance of the determination or notification of a final decision or other action on an objection filed pursuant to Section 240.1645.
The provider agency may also object to the decision in a form and manner prescribed by the Illinois Department on Aging in the written notification of denial (see 89 Illinois Administrative Code 240.1645, Objection to Certification Decision).
A provider may file an objection, in limited circumstances, if a certification request is denied by the Illinois Department on Aging.
An objection regarding a certification decision must be in writing and must be received at the Illinois Department on Aging Springfield office on or before the tenth calendar day from the date of the applicant's receipt of the notice of the objectionable action. If the objection is not received before the close of business on the tenth calendar day, the objection shall be disregarded.
Each objection must contain a full and concise statement of the facts and circumstances of the action that is alleged to be objectionable, legally or otherwise, and a statement of the relief sought.
