The Division of Developmental Disabilities (DD) continues to improve our system. This is in response to national trends and local needs.
DD Rate Reform
The Division is working to assess and improve Nebraska's current Medicaid Waiver rate structure to ensure appropriate reimbursement. Information can be found on our rate reform page
. This page will continue to be updated as the process continues and we want to ensure that you, our stakeholders, have the most recent information.
Regulation Drafts for Public Comment
The Division is in the process of writing new regulations. We are not yet in an “official” public comment period, but are providing working drafts for stakeholder review on a public comment page. The working draft will continue to change as input is received. We want to ensure that you, our stakeholders, have maximum opportunity to review and make suggestions.
National Core Indicators (NCI)
We want to improve services in Nebraska. Nebraska is participating in a National Core Indicators (NCI) project survey that assesses the quality of life for adults receiving services from the Division. We encourage you to check our our NCI website, hosted by Monroe-Meyer Institute. Your opinions and feedback can help!
NCI surveyors may be contacting you to participate in the survey. More details are available on these FAQs.
If you are an adult receiving DD services, or someone in your family receives DD services, read our announcement to find out more!
