The New Jersey Division of Developmental Disabilities is moving from a contract-based system of service reimbursement to a Medicaid-based, fee-for-service (FFS) reimbursement system.

Simply put, "fee-for-service" means that payment to a provider happens only after the provider has actually delivered a service to an individual. This differs from the contract-based service system, in which providers are paid prior to the delivery of services.

We know there are many questions and concerns with regard to the Division's implementation of the fee-for-service system. We are working to improve communication between the Division and its constituents, and to develop materials that will assist individuals, families and providers in understanding the new system.

To receive regular updates please subscribe to our e-news bulletin, Division Update, by sending an email to DDD.Communications@dhs.state.nj.us with "Division Update Subscribe" in the subject line.

How Do I Access Services in the New Fee-for-Service System?

To access Division-funded services in the Medicaid-based, fee-for-service system, individuals must be enrolled on one of two Medicaid waivers: 

(1) Supports Waiver ("Supports Program") 
     or
(2) Community Care Waiver (CCW)

To learn about the services available through these Medicaid waivers, please review the Supports Program Draft Service Definitions and Qualifications and the Community Care Waiver Draft Service Definitions and Qualifications.



How Do I Become a Medicaid/DDD Approved Provider?

To apply to provide Division-funded services in the new Medicaid-based, fee-for-service system, please visit the Fee-for-Service Provider Portal.
