The XYZ package was sent to the single county authorities (SCAs) this morning to begin the rate setting process for the 2019–20 fiscal year. Below are numerous documents relative to the 2019–20 XYZ Rate Setting Process. The release of these documents was delayed due to discussion surrounding implementation of the ASAM Criteria. The package remains mostly unchanged, with the exception of “Section C – Program Specific Description Information,” which has been revised to be reflective of the ASAM Criteria. Please note that the 3.7 level of care has not been incorporated into the rate setting package given DDAP and DHS are still working to appropriately designate providers with this level of care. Due to the delayed release of these documents, the timeframes for completion of the process have been adjusted. The new timeframes are as follows:

  • November 1 – Provider audits due to SCAs, unless otherwise specified in the DDAP/SCA Grant Agreement
  • By or before March 1 – Providers submit the completed XYZ package to the SCA
  • By or before April 15 – SCAs respond to providers with the approved rates
  • April 15 to April 30 – Provider appeals are submitted to the SCA
  • April 30 to May 15 – Appeals that are unable to be resolved at the SCA level are submitted to DDAP
  • By or before May 31 – SCA posts rates to PACDAA’s web page
