Roster Applicant and Participant Notice
Application to and participation in the Spoken Language Health Care Interpreter Roster is voluntary. No one is required to be in the Roster or complete the application. However, to be in the Roster, an application must be completed and the fee paid. Some of the information asked for in the Roster application is required, and some is optional. Providing the required application information and payment of the application fee will result in the interpreter's information being held in a database of healthcare interpreters at the Minnesota Department of Health. Not providing the application information that is required will result in an error message appearing at the top of the page in red script. Not supplying required information will prevent you completing the Roster application.
All the information you give in the application for the Roster is public. However, in the Roster application you may choose to be not available to interpret, and all information you enter in the application (except last and first names, Roster ID and expiration date) will not be displayed in a search of the Roster to find an interpreter. If you choose to be available to interpret the following personal information will not be displayed: your birth date, place of birth, where you grew up, religion, mailing address and optional contact information
The following personal information will be displayed if you choose to be available to interpret: the languages you interpret, your age range, primary phone number, primary email address, times and locations you are available to interpret, specialty areas and number ranges of interpreting encounters in those specialty areas, and any network or agency names and phone numbers with which you are associated.
To continue your listing in the Roster, you must renew online once each year. You will receive an email 60 days before your Roster participation will end. If you do not renew when you receive the 60-day notice, you will receive a reminder email 10 days before your participation in the Roster will end. If you do not renew within the 10 days, your name will no longer appear in the Roster. It is possible to renew after your Roster participation has expired, but there will then be a lapse in your Roster participation. You must be in the Roster in order to bill Medicaid for Spoken Language Healthcare Interpreter services.
Please note: You do not pay a fee to change or update your Roster information.
