Provider Manual

The DARS DRS Standards for Providers is available. Only those providers required by contract to do so must comply with these standards.


DARS is completing a global change of the term purchase order as it relates to goods and services when purchased on behalf of consumers using the DARS case management system. Once these revisions are complete, all references to purchase order in the Standards will state service authorization and/or purchase order. No other changes to content or format have been made. DARS will issue service authorizations to vendors providing goods and services on behalf of consumers of the Division for Blind Services and the Division for Rehabilitation Services. However, please note that this change does not apply to services provided in the community by the DRS-Office for Deaf and Hard of Hearing Services and their contractors).
