Deficit Reduction Act of 2005

Section 6032 of the Deficit Reduction Act of 2005 (DRA) requires providers who meet the definition of entity and who make or receive annual Medicaid payments of $5 million or more to establish and disseminate certain written policies for preventing and detecting fraud, waste and abuse. The entities must also provide information to employees and contractors about the Federal False Claims Act and other applicable federal and state false claims laws, the administrative remedies for false claims and statements, and the whistleblower protections afforded under such laws.

Each year the Department requires providers who are subject to Section 6032 to provide certain documentation to show compliance with these requirements. Providers will receive an email from the Department requesting this documentation. Please ensure the contact information in the DXC system is current so that you will receive this email.

Entities subject to the DRA must complete and return to the Department the attached DRA Declaration. Entities with multiple identified locations must send one DRA Declaration with an attachment listing all NPIs and service location IDs covered by the DRA Declaration.  For Federal Fiscal Year (FFY 20-21) October 1, 2020 through September 20, 2021 Providers are required to submit the Declaration only.  

The completed DRA Declaration must be emailed to hcpf_draact2005@state.co.us no later than November 1, 2021. 

For questions related to the DRA, please contact Eileen Sandoval at hcpf_draact2005@state.co.us.
