Effective January 1, 2006, the Bureau of Quality Assurance (BQA) will
implement a new process for disseminating information and updates to
providers. The BQA Quarterly Information Update will be posted to the
Internet once it is final and a postcard or similar notification will be
mailed to providers announcing the posting and giving the website
location. BQA will no longer be routinely mailing hard copies of the BQA
Quarterly Information Update.
As you are aware, in March, 2002, the BQA began compiling information
into a quarterly newsletter format and ended the mailing of BQA memos,
with occasional exceptions. This transition has worked well and it is time
to take the next step. The process of immediately posting new memos on our
website will continue. All providers and interested stakeholders should
check the website frequently for new, updated information, as well as when
they receive notification from BQA.
The BQA website for BQA memos and Quarterly Information Updates is
located at: http://www.dhs.wisconsin.gov/rl_DSL/Publications/
The State of Wisconsin, along with the Department of Health and Family
Services, is engaged in a major effort to provide greater electronic
access to its services. If you have any questions or comments about the
BQA memos or other provider information on the DHFS website, please
contact Todd McCall, (608) 267-3808, email address firstname.lastname@example.org.
Any other questions should be directed to Jan Eakins at (608) 266-2055,
