Initial Registration: Part 1 Overview
Provider Organizations that meet the criteria for registration as of July 18, 2014 are required to file an application with the HPC in accordance with the most current version of the Data Submission Manual, available below, issued pursuant to 958 CMR 6.00.
The first time that a Provider Organization files an application is Initial Registration. The Initial Registration process will be split into two phases: Initial Registration: Part 1 (IR: Part 1) and Initial Registration: Part 2 (IR: Part 2). The HPC created this two-part process to give Provider Organizations an opportunity to ask questions about the terms used in the regulation and the DSM before completing full registration requirements.
