Provider Information

Welcome to the Provider Information area of our website. We have developed this area to assist both currently contracted providers with Region 3B and those who wish to inquire about an application to become a provider of services. You do not need a login or password to use this area and download documents.


Applicants for Grant funding and Direct Service Providers find it useful to review our Multi Year Plan (MYP) and Annual Implementation Plan (AIP), to gain greater understanding of Region 3B Area Agency on Aging programs, services, and mission.

Grant Funded Providers Minimum Service Standards:

Grant Funded Providers should review the attached Minimum Service Standards, as defined by the Michigan Office of Services to the Aging.

For Existing Providers and Providers Seeking Application Status:

DPOS Minimum Service Standards Manual for FY 2017 

The DPOS Minimum Service Standards is presented below.  Please save a copy to your computer in order to print it for your file.  All new edits are featured in yellow highlight.  Also provided are the FY 2017 Annual Assurances that coordinate with the receipt of the current DPOS Service Manual.  Please have your business’s owner and/or authorized signatory sign and MAIL the original, signed Assurances to Region 3B AAA (ATTN: CONTRACTS) no later than Thursday, January 12, 2017.  Please e-mail Shannon  if your business will need a deadline extension.  This is a legal, binding contract document that if not returned to us, may cause us to hold referrals until we receive it.  Please return it to us promptly.

For Potential Provider Contract Applicants – MI-Choice Waiver:

Please find the New Provider Application below.  We recommend that you download this to your computer and save it BEFORE attempting to fill in the form.  Make sure to review the DPOS Minimum Standards Manual and the General Services Descriptions  (above) prior to filing an application with Region 3B AAA.

When inquiring about obtaining contract status, please return this document and the additional items requested in the document either by e-mail:  or fax: 269-441-5314,  ATTN: Contracts.  We will acknowledge receipt of your information by e-mail and forward your request to our New Provider Committee for review.  PLEASE NOTE:  If you are accepted into the Region 3B Area Agency on Aging provider pool, attaining active provider status with Region 3B does not guarantee regular referrals for services. All referrals are based upon participant choices.

 Thank you for your interest in Region 3B Area Agency on Aging!
