Provider types

Regulation for clinics

DQA doesn’t regulate free-standing outpatient clinics and urgent care centers unless they are under a hospital’s Medicare number. If you are opening a clinic, please work with your local municipality and/or the Department of Safety and Professional Services. They can help you with any building or clinician professional licensure and credentialing.

Contact us

If you have questions, please select the appropriate link from the list above. From there, you’ll find contact information for that provider type.

If you feel a caregiver or provider has violated state or federal laws, you can file a complaint.
