SFY 2015 REIMBURSEMENT DHS/DASA RATE INCREASE

Effective November 1, 2014, reimbursement rates contained in State Fiscal Year 2015 Illinois Department of Human Services/Division of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse (DHS/DASA) contracts will increase by 3 percent. This increase will apply to all contract and Medicaid rates.

Rates will be modified on the DHS DARTS mainframe. Notification of the increase will be sent to the Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family Services, Department of Corrections and Department of Children and Family Services as the DHS/DASA rates are used as a part of their award/contracting processes.

The current CMS Mobius reports will be updated to reflect the November 1, 2014 increase when main frame changes have been completed. Adjustments to the DHS/DASA contract Exhibit 1, will reflect the increase for each DARTS reporting unit and program and will be sent to you in the near future.

The DHS/DASA Contractual Policy Manual reimbursement rates page has also been modified to reflect rates in effect for July 1, 2014 to October 31, 2014 and for November 1, 2014 to June 30, 2015 and may be reviewed or downloaded at http://www.dhs.state.il.us/page.aspx?item=29747.

If you have any questions regarding contract adjustments or the rate increase, please contact your DHS/DASA contract manager directly or the DHS/DASA Help Desk at DHS.DASAHELP@illinois.gov.
