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 2013 legislation.
