January 24, 2021 DDD Communication - Provider Extension Letter

January 14, 2021

Dear Providers,

This communication is a follow up to our Division communication on December 23, 2020 extending the Appendix K increases until the expiration on January 26, 2021. This communication serves as formal notification that we are working with Healthcare and Family Services to extend our Appendix K and the below referenced increases will be extended through March 31, 2021. The Division will determine in March if there is the ability to extend beyond this date.

  • The 5% rate increase to the 60D Community Integrated Living Arrangements (CILA) will continue through March 31, 2021.
  • The 15% rate increase for CDS providers (31U/31C) will continue through March 31, 2021.
  • 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 are appropriately updated to reflect the correct rates.

The Division will provide new rate sheets after the COVID premium rates have ended. The Division will be forwarding, as we have with the past rate changes during COVID, updated rate summaries to each CILA provider.

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

Director, Division of Developmental Disabilities
