Action Requests (AR) - Action Requests are used to request action by a given deadline. They are time-sensitive and should be read and processed or assigned upon receipt.
Information Memoranda (IM) - Information Memoranda are used to disseminate general information such as client and/or provider notice alerts, conferences or training sessions that do not require a specific action or involve policy. IMs are generally a lower priority than Policy Transmittals or Action Requests.
Policy Transmittals (PT) - Policy transmittals should be considered high priority, and processed immediately. They are used to disseminate new federal, state, and program policies or administrative rules, changes in existing policy or administrative rules, policy clarifications and manual updates.
Automated Computer Capture and Storage System, ACCESS (AC) - ACCESS transmittals are no longer used. Information Memorandums (IM) or Action Requests (AR) are now used to release information regarding ACCESS updates or enahcements and modification to the system designed to automate the Medicaid and financial assistance intake and redetermination processes for DHS/SPD clients. Archive transmittals are available as follows: 2000 2001 2002 2003
