Chemical dependency rates reform project

The 2009 Minnesota legislature directed the Alcohol and Drug Abuse Division (ADAD) to prepare for the 2011 legislature a statewide rate methodology for the Consolidated Chemical Treatment Fund (CCDTF). The methodology will replace county-negotiated rates with a uniform statewide methodology that includes a graduated reimbursement scale based on the patients’ level of acuity and complexity and performance add-ons.

Rate reform authorization codes

When authorizing services, placing authorities will use modifiers to identify the type of treatment or specialty it is authorizing. Refer to the CCDTF procedure, modifier, and provider specialty code descriptions sheet.

Refer to the appropriate rate grid for percentages in dollar amounts:

Rate reform monitoring checklist for program standards

ADAD has developed a checklist for monitoring compliance with the program standards.  Programs may use the self-monitoring checklist to monitor compliance with the program standards.  Each check list includes the statute or rule requirements, and the language from the requirement.  Indicate compliance with the requirements under the column titled “item met or not met” using the following codes:

  • • 0 = program met the standards
  • • 1 = program did not meet the standards
  • • N/A = not applicable
  • The program standards apply to the chemical dependency programs licensed by the State of Minnesota or the tribes.

  • • Residential treatment programs for adults and adolescents
  • • Treatment for intravenous drug abusers
  • • Co-occurring services
  • • Treatment for pregnant women and women with children
  • • Special populations
  • • Medical services
  • The checklist will also be used by DHS, ADAD monitors for evaluating programs in the future.
