Re: Correction: CMS approved rate reduction announcement
Date: August 4, 2014
On Friday, August 1, 2014, the Division of Disability and Rehabilitative Services (DDRS) sent out an announcement regarding the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) approval of State Plan Amendment13-005 to adjust the rate reduction on reimbursement for non-state-owned intermediate care facilities for individuals with intellectual disabilities (ICF/IID) and community residential facilities for the developmentally disabled (CRF/DD) services.
The announcement incorrectly stated that the reimbursement will be effective January 1, 2015, through June 30, 2015. The correct effective date is January 1, 2014, through June 2015.
DDRS would like to apologize for any confusion this error may have caused.
