Below please find information on the upcoming HCBS Rate Methodology Project Webinar on March 18. The webinar will be posted on the DDRS Website.
New federal guidance requires the Indiana Family and Social Services Administration (FSSA) to update many of the state’s home- and community-based (HCBS) provider payment rate methodologies. Beginning this year, FSSA will conduct HCBS rate methodology projects that are expected to culminate in the submission of waiver amendments and possible state plan amendments to the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services for approval.
Each rate methodology project will involve the following phases:
1. Project and stakeholder engagement planning
2. Rate methodology development to achieve FSSA goals and objectives
3. Rate setting and calculations based on final selected rate methodologies
4. Waiver/state plan amendments and CMS approval process
Balanced input from the full range of stakeholders is critical to this process. On Monday, March 18th at 2:00PM ET, FSSA will conduct a live webinar to provide an overview of these upcoming projects and give information about how you can stay informed and be involved.
