Disclosure of Ownership and Excluded Entities

The Minnesota Department of Human Services (DHS) requires Medica to ensure that its network providers meet certain obligations pertaining to disclosure of ownership interests and the provision of items and services by individuals or entities excluded from participation in government programs. These requirements are summarized below, along with the process for submitting this information to Medica on a new Disclosure Statement form.

Disclosure of Ownership Interests

On an annual basis, providers must report to Medica the following information related to ownership interests:

  • The name and address of each person with an ownership or control interest in the provider, or in any subcontractor in which the provider has a direct or indirect ownership of 5 percent or more;
  • The name and address of each managing employee (general manager, business manager, administrator, or director) who exercises operational or managerial control over the Provider, or part thereof, or who directly or indirectly conducts the day-to- day operations of the Provider, or part thereof; and
  • A statement as to whether any person with an ownership or control interest is related as a spouse, parent, child, or sibling to any other person with an ownership or control interest; and
  • For a person with an ownership or control interest in the provider, the name of any organization in which the person has an additional ownership or control interest.

Note: Providers must complete and submit the Disclosure Statement form on an annual basis, whether or not they have information to report. A New Disclosure Statement must be submitted when any information in the original statement has changed.

This disclosure stems from additional requirements for disclosure by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
