BDDS new providers

DDRS no longer holds new provider orientation sessions; enrollment is now open year around. All components of the new provider proposal packet must be completed in order for an application to be considered. If any portion of the packet is incomplete, the proposal will be denied.

If an agency/individual initial BDDS application is denied, the agency/individual may submit one additional application within a 12 month timeframe. If the second and final proposal is also denied, 12 full months must pass from the date of the last proposal submission before a new proposal will be accepted.

Proposals should be submitted to:
Director of Provider Relations
DDRS - Division of Disability and Rehabilitative Services
402 W. Washington St., RM 453, MS 18
Indianapolis, IN 46207 - 7083

Becoming a DDRS waiver provider entails a two part enrollment process.  Once a potential provider becomes approved through DDRS provider relations, they must then enroll with Indiana Health Coverage Programs (IHCP). In order to view the requirements, please reference

Once a prospective provider receives the DDRS waiver service certification letter, the enrollment process with the IHCP begins. The enrollment application MUST be submitted within 90 days of certification. A prospective provider may obtain an IHCP provider enrollment application by downloading it from the provider enrollment page at or by contacting 1-877-707-5750 to request an application by mail.

Prospective providers must complete the enrollment application form and submit the completed application form along with the waiver service certification letter to the following address: Provider Enrollment P.O. Box 7263 Indianapolis, IN 46207-7263
