Independent Informal Dispute Resolution (IDR) Process Awarded to Michigan Peer Review Organization

Senate Bill 304 from the 2015 Legislature required the Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) to contract with a disinterested non-profit organization to perform informal dispute resolutions (IDR) reviews. Beginning September 1, all IDR requests from nursing homes, assisted living facilities and Intermediate Care Facilities for Individuals with an Intellectual Disability or Related Condition (ICF/IIDs) will be performed by the Michigan Peer Review Organization (MPRO).  MPRO might perform some reviews during the transition in August. HHSC will notify those facilities when they ask for the IDR. To ask for an IDR, submit a fully executed request form to HHSC within 10 calendar days of receiving the official Form 2567/Form 3724. If the request is timely, HHSC will forward the request to MPRO.
