In addition, the online compliance history includes information regarding adverse actions that may be the subject of a pending appeal. An adverse action is not final until a provider has exhausted or waived all due process rights.

The Virginia Department of Social Services (VDSS) is not responsible for any errors in or omissions from the compliance history information.
