Certified MUI (Major Unusual Incident ) Investigative Agents receive reports of abuse, neglect, misappropriation, or any other MUI as defined in state law regulation and County Board Policy. These incidents are investigated to ensure the health and welfare of the affected individual is protected.
"Unusual incident" means an event or occurrence involving an individual that is not consistent with routine operations, policies and procedures, or the individual's care or individual service plan, but is not a major unusual incident.
Clearwater COG conducts provider compliance reviews Medicaid waiver providers on behalf the COG’s seven County Boards of Developmental Disabilities.
