Rate Reform and OAP Redesign

The Division of Developmental Disabilities is working to assess and improve Nebraska's current Medicaid Waiver rate structure to ensure appropriate reimbursement. DHHS-DD is working with Optumas to perform a Provider Rate Rebase Study to develop updated payment rates for services provided under Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) Waivers.
There are two phases for rate reform:
  • Phase I  - Rate Rebase - Understanding service costs and cost components
  • Phase II - OAP Redesign - Changing reimbursement structure for services
