FAQs About the Provider City
Our agency operates several sites. We have a child who received services at one of our sites during the first part of the month, but transferred to a different site during the last part of the month. How do we report this?
For children receiving services at two different centers operated by the same provider, you would report two providers for this child. All the provider information would be the same except each would reflect a different city (and possibly a different zip code).
