Provider Rate Increase Virtual Forum
31 August 2021 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Governor Doug Ducey and the Arizona State Legislature approved funding in the most recent Legislative session for the Arizona Department of Economic Security (DES) Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD) to increase rates paid to Qualified Vendors for Home and Community Based (HCBS) services.
A series of virtual forums will be hosted by DDD in August 2021. We encourage members, families, vendors and providers to attend. DDD will talk about its proposed plan for provider rate increases. Attendees can provide input about the services they feel are in most need of rate increases. As DDD develops provider rate increases using funding provided in the FY2022 budget, DDD will take into account:
Feedback from these forums.
Submitted written comments.
An analysis of data including, but not limited to, services with wait lists, network adequacy, and changes in the minimum wage.
The forum schedule is listed below. At least one forum will be recorded. Qualified Vendors and providers who cannot attend a forum can review the presentation on the DDD website and submit comments using this online form.
