2017 Disability waiver rate-setting frameworks
Rate frameworks are the basis for pricing waiver services within the four disability waivers. All formulas used in the calculation of a rate are visible on the rate framework spreadsheets. The frameworks build upon a consistent structure that:
- Captures the individualized nature of services and client needs
- Contains cells that allow data inputs
- Includes wages, employee and program-related expenses and general and administrative expenses
DHS has updated the rate frameworks based on 2017 legislation. For 2013 rate framework drafts, visit the 2013 Disability waiver rate-setting frameworks webpage.
