  • The Provider Owned Solution:
    • The burden and cost procurement are the responsibility of the provider.

  • Current Implementation Status: The West Virginia Department of health and Human Resources (DHHR) has been working with Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to establish finalized implementation dates.
