Release of revised rate models delayed

October 2, 2019

This year’s Budget trailer bill (SB 81) required the Department of Developmental Services to post a summary of public comments, departmental responses to those comments, and any necessary and appropriate revisions to the rate models contained in the rate study by October 1. The deadline has passed and DDS has confirmed that it does not have a firm date for the release of the information.

The department now plans to convene the rates workgroup to review the revised rate models prior to public release. In August, CDSA sent a letter to DDS urging the department to reconvene the workgroup in advance of the October 1 deadline to review any revisions and provide feedback.

We will keep the CDSA members updated as we learn more about the proposed timeline.
