March 9, 2021 DDD Communication

March 9, 2021

Dear Providers,

This communication is a follow up to our Division communication on January 14, 2020 extending the Appendix K increases until March 31, 2021. This communication serves as formal notification that we are extending the temporary increases, as outlined below, to June 30, 2021.

  • The 5% rate increase to the 60D Community Integrated Living Arrangements (CILA) will continue through June 30, 2021.
  • The 15% rate increase for CDS providers (31U/31C) will continue through June 30, 2021.
  • As previously stated, all policy amendments allowed for under Appendix K will be maintained through the rest of this fiscal year, or June 30, 2021, including Home Day Program (37U) will continue to be available, without prior approval, for all CILA residents.

Home-Based Support Service program participants must ensure their service agreements appropriately reflect the correct rates.

The Division will provide new rate sheets after the COVID premium rates have ended. The Division mailed updated rate summaries to each CILA provider late last week.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out. Thank you for all you are doing.


Allison Stark

Director, Division of Developmental Disabilities
