I/DD Rate Study: Review and Comment Period

The Georgia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities (DBHDD) is in the process of reviewing payment rates and policies for services provided through the New Options and Comprehensive Supports Waivers. Burns & Associates, a division of Health Management Associates (HMA-Burns), has been contracted to assist with this rate study and has developed initial recommendations.

Interested stakeholders are encouraged to review the materials posted to the Burns and Associates website at www.burnshealthpolicy.com/GeorgiaWaiverRates/, including a recorded webinar that explains the recommendations.

Please note, these recommendations are not final. DBHDD and HMA-Burns want to hear from community stakeholders before finalizing the proposals. Individuals may submit written comments directly to [email protected] until Friday, January 20, 2023. Commenters are encouraged to be as specific as possible and may submit any other documentation they believe should be considered.

All comments and submitted materials will be considered before the recommendations are finalized. Your public comment contributions are valued as an essential part of the rate development process.
