NOTE: The 2017 Minnesota Legislature approved new rate frameworks, which are available on the 2017 Disability waiver rate-setting frameworks webpage. The frameworks below are provided for reference only
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 updated its rate frameworks below based on 2013 legislation.
If you have questions or comments on the 2013 rate frameworks, or need an alternative format, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
