Medicaid Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) Providers now can register and create a listing on Angie’s List at no charge. According Angie’s List, one of the most well-known online consumer review sites, more than 2 million households nationwide check Angie’s List reviews to find the best local service providers.
The effort to add Medicaid HCBS Providers to Angie’s List was led by the Franklin County Board, with the help of Lisa Ryan, a parent.
“This is a great tool for everyone,” said Jed Morrison, superintendent and CEO of the Franklin County Board. “Providers can use it to market their business, and individuals and families can rate their current providers, and get information about new providers.”
Some key points about Angie’s List:
- Only members of Angie’s List can review service provider ratings.
- Anyone can review a provider, whether or not they are a member of Angie’s List.
- Reviews cannot be anonymous. Names of reviewers are not listed publicly, but are released to the provider they are reviewing.
If you are a provider, you can create a listing at no charge by calling 888-944-5478, and asking for the Business Center. Providers likely would be included in the Home Health Care or Home Health Aid listings. Be sure to include “developmental disabilities” in your listing so that you can be easily found when someone does a keyword search.
