To: Lead agencies, and home and community-based waiver service providers
From: DHS Disability Services Division, DWRS policy staff
Purpose: To inform lead agencies and waiver service providers of a July update to the RMS and what they need to do before and after the changes
On June 16, 2017, DHS will implement several changes in the Disability Waiver Rate System (DWRS). The changes automatically will be integrated in the Rate Management System (RMS). Implementation will occur on a rolling basis as service authorizations renew or service authorization changes take place.
DHS is making the changes to include adjustments approved in 2013 and 2017 legislation. Going forward, the rate framework calculations will reflect the five-year, automatic component and wage value adjustments.
