APD Continues Cost Containment Efforts

On April 1, Agency for Persons with Disabilities (APD) will reduce the rates it pays for therapy assessments and all nursing services to the standard rate paid by the Medicaid State Plan.  Currently, the APD Home and Community-Based Services Medicaid waiver pays higher rates for most of these services.
This rate change is the latest cost containment effort by APD to work toward bringing waiver expenses closer to the agency’s Legislative appropriation for the waiver.
