The definition of a Medical Assistance Facility is a facility which provides inpatient care to ill or injured persons prior to their transportation to a hospital, or provides inpatient care to persons needing care for a period of no longer than 60 hours, and is located more than 30 miles from the nearest Wyoming hospital.
A valid state license is required prior to providing care to any client/patient/resident.
Following are the requirements and procedures through which your agency may be approved to be licensed as a provider of Medical Assistance Facility services.
Click below for a license application for State licensure. Please fill out the application in its entirety and submit to our office, along with the required fee. After reviewing the regulations, please contact one of our engineers at (307) 777-7123 to discuss the building requirements and any construction review approval process. Once we have approved these items, a provisional license will be issued, and you will be able to start providing services to clients/patients/residents.
When you have clients/patients/residents for which you are providing services, your agency must request, in writing, that a health survey be conducted. An unannounced survey will be provided by state surveyors as soon as scheduling permits. When the initial survey has been completed and the facility is found to be in compliance with the regulations, a permanent license will be issued.
A license permits an applicant to operate a healthcare facility in Wyoming. It does not enroll or certify a provider or supplier of healthcare services to participate in federal certification programs (Medicare/Medicaid).
