Procedures for Privacy and Security Policies Questionnaire
- A navigator organization initiates the process for requesting an enrollment report by submitting a completed and signed Enrollment Report: FY 2017 Privacy and Security Policies Questionnaire to the Assister Resource Center (ARC) by fax or email.
- The Questionnaire confirms that an organization has in place the privacy and security policies and procedures that are included in Section 6.0 of the MNsure Grant Services Contract Navigator/In-Person Assistance Attachment A. Failure to have a particular policy or procedure in place does not necessarily mean the Questionnaire will be denied, but an organization should provide an explanation and may be contacted for further information.
- The Questionnaire must be completed by the information privacy and security responsible party designated by the navigator organization in Section 4.2 of the MNsure Grant Services Contract Navigator/In-Person Assistance Attachment A. If the information privacy and security responsible party as changed since the contract was finalized, the organization’s authorized representative or the individual with signature authority must complete and submit a Request to Update Authorized Contacts form to the ARC.
- The completed Questionnaire should be faxed or emailed to the ARC.
- MNsure will review the Questionnaire for completeness and evaluate the organization’s compliance with privacy and security requirements.
- If the Questionnaire is incomplete, MNsure will notify the sender and request that a complete Questionnaire be submitted.
- If the Questionnaire is not submitted by the information privacy and security responsible party on record, MNsure will request that the Questionnaire be resubmitted, or that the navigator organization’s information privacy and security responsible party be updated using the Request to Update Authorized Contacts form.
- If there are any questions regarding answers to the Questionnaire, MNsure will contact the information privacy and security responsible party for clarification.
- If the Questionnaire is approved, MNsure will notify the information privacy and security responsible party and proceed with processing any available enrollment reports.
- If the Questionnaire is denied, MNsure will notify the information privacy and security responsible party. After being notified of a denial, an organization has 30 days to appeal the decision. An organization that is denied may submit a new Questionnaire in the next fiscal year.

- If eligible for payment, a payment will be issued.
- If ineligible for payment, the reason will be included.
