Agency appeals are available to providers, applicants, or recipients as stated in Chapter 9 of the Child Care Payment Policy manual. Below is language from the policy manual specifically related to administrative agency appeal.
“ADMINISTRATIVE AGENCY APPEAL
An administrative agency appeal hearing is available for any child care provider, applicant or recipient upon written request to the Administrative Hearings Division of the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) of MDHS. An administrative agency appeal hearing provides an opportunity for a more formal review when the child care provider, applicant, or recipient disagrees with an adverse action that was taken directly by MDHS. MDHS Programmatic Administrative Agency Appeal Hearing Policy is incorporated herein by reference (See Part 23, Chapter 3).”
