Fee For Service Implementation
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. The draft Fee For Service Rate Schedule was released on July 18, 2014. At this time, these rates are recommended and have not yet been approved.
This Fee For Service Implementation web page will be updated regularly as the system transition unfolds over the next several months. In addition, a dedicated Fee For Service Helpdesk will be in place by August 1, 2014 for questions regarding the transition and/or the new system.
The Rate Setting ProcessThe New Jersey Department of Human Services engaged Myers and Stauffer LC (MSLC) and Johnston Villegas-Grubbs & Associates LLC (JVGA) to develop a standard fee schedule for diability services provided through the new Medicaid-based fee-for-service system.
JVGA began a comprehensive statewide analysis in January, 2013 and released its Final Report and Rate Schedule July 18, 2014. At this time, the rates are recommended and have not yet been adopted.
