Chapter DHS 132 - Nursing Homes Waivers

Note: The following provisions have been previously waived for T-18 & T-19 or dually certified facilities but are still applicable to state licensed only facilities. 

DHS 132 Provision Title/Subject Area Authority
Fed. Reg.
Rationale for Waiving Notations


Alternate physician visit schedule justification


Federal regulations at F387 and F388 detail provisions for alternate visits.

Also waived for state licensed only nursing homes because the requirement at DHS 132.61(2)(b) was removed from DHS 132.


Dental Care


More prescriptive than federal dental services requirements

Keep language in rule for state licensed only nursing homes. Nothing similar in DHS 132 that addresses this issue.
