Q: Are providers in Puerto Rico required to submit a letter of good standing with their applications? How far in advance can the letter be dated prior to submission of the application?
A: Yes, for initial, revalidation and reactivation applications, a Puerto Rico provider is required to submit a letter of good standing with their application. The letter of good standing is not required with a change of information application. The letter must be dated within 12 months prior to First Coast’s receipt of the application. The letter of good standing can be obtained from the Puerto Rico Department of State.
The letter of good standing, along with other documents, is required since there are not online websites and databases available for verification of Puerto Rico provider information.
First Coast Service Options (First Coast) strives to ensure that the information available on our provider website is accurate, detailed, and current. Therefore, this is a dynamic site and its content changes daily. It is best to access the site to ensure you have the most current information rather than printing articles or forms that may become obsolete without notice.
