Update on the Delay in Waiver & Rates Changes

June 24, 2016

As a follow-up to our notice of earlier this week and the numerous communications from DBHDS, the Medicaid Memo about the delay has been posted and is available¬†here. ¬†CMS is now paying much closer attention to any changes that a state makes in it’s payment rates and¬†has not yet approved any of the rate revisions approved by the General Assembly last Session. We expect their review to be concluded fairly quickly so that the Waiver Redesign and the new rates (including those not part of the DD Waiver package) can be implemented by August 1st! Watch closely for new communication from DMAS – remember that the Medicaid Memos are linked at the very top of the Provider Resources page!
