Earlier today, the Bureau of Rehabilitation Services announced a modification to Supported Employment (SE) Services under the Vocational Rehabilitation Employment Services Model. Based on feedback from providers and the VR Rate Reform Workgroup, the Bureau plans to eliminate the current SE levels and will authorize all SE on an hourly basis based on consumer need.
INARF is supportive of this change. Moreover, the Association and its members appreciate the Bureau’s responsiveness to taking steps to simplify and streamline the authorization process.
For more information on this change, please read today’s bulletin and plan to participate in upcoming Check and Connect Webinars scheduled for February 22nd and February 25th that will review these changes and provide opportunity for questions.
We hope this information is helpful and that you find this change beneficial in your efforts to support individuals in achieving their employment outcomes. Thank you and have a great day!
