The Oregon Department of Human Services (DHS) requires agents and other professionals who are compensated for providing long-term care referrals to register with DHS every two years. Referral agents must meet certain disclosure requirements, including providing consumers with information about their compensation practices, and whether they share a consumer’s personal information. Referral agents must demonstrate to DHS they have met the requirements and have liability insurance. They must also submit to a background check in order to register. Registrations began July 1, 2018.
