The Office of Developmental Programs (ODP) had previously issued Announcement 017-18, indicating that pending approval by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), waiver Transportation (Trip) services would be paid on a fee schedule effective July 1, 2018. ODP does not anticipate receiving this approval by July 1, 2018. Therefore, ODP is requesting that providers who deliver discrete Transportation (Trip) services as Provider Type 26 to individuals enrolled in the Consolidated, Person/Family-Directed Support (P/FDS), or Community Living (CL) Waiver programs complete this cost report in order for ODP to develop rates based on the provider’s historical expense data.
If the provider does not complete the cost report by June 17, 2018, ODP will pay the Transportation (Trip) provider the Fiscal Year (FY) 2017/2018 assigned rates. The data in the approved cost reports will be used by ODP in the development of cost-based Transportation (Trip) rates during FY 2018/2019 until ODP receives approval from CMS for the Transportation (Trip) fee schedule.
Completed cost reports should be submitted via email by 11:59 pm on Sunday, June 17, 2018. The posted materials described above can be accessed via this link. Direct all questions to the Rate Setting Mailbox.
