DHHS-DD is working to improve Nebraska's current Medicaid waiver rate structure to make sure reimbursement for developmental disabilities services is appropriate.


Phase I  - Rate rebase - This provider study will help us understand service costs and cost components. The goal is to update payment rates for services provided under Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) waivers.

Phase II - Objective Assessment Process (OAP) redesign - This process will be changed to better tie funding to needs.
