DHHS-DD is working to improve Nebraska's current Medicaid Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) developmental disabilities (DD) waiver rate structure to make sure reimbursement for DD services is appropriate.
Phase I: Rate Rebase - This DD provider study was to understand service costs and cost components. The goal is to update payment rates for DD waiver services.
Phase II: Objective Assessment Process (OAP) Redesign - This process will change to better tie funding to needs.
