The New Jersey Division of Developmental Disabilities is moving from a contracted system of care reimbursement to a Medicaid-based fee-for-service (FFS) sytem. We know there are many questions regarding the Division's transition to the FFS model, and we are currently developing materials to assist individuals, families and providers in understanding the new system.
You can submit FFS-related questions to the Division's Fee for Service Helpdesk at: DDD.FeeForService@dhs.state.nj.us
To receive regular updates via our e-news bulletin, Division Update, please send an email to DDD.Communications@dhs.state.nj.us with "Division Update Subscribe" in the subject line (and be sure to add the Division Communications email to your safe sender list).
