Updates & Resources: Fee-For-Service Transition

January 5th, 2015

The New Jersey Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD) anticipates launching their new fee-for-service system beginning July 1, 2015. During the transition from a contract-based service system to a Medicaid-based, fee-for-service system, service providers, consumers, and their families await updates and information regarding next steps. 

While much of this information is still forthcoming from the state, DDD did release a draft of the fee-for-service rate schedule on July 18 of this year. They also established a fee-for-service help desk to answer all fee-for-service questions. 

For information and announcements regarding the Division's transition from a contract-based service system to a Medicaid-based fee-for-service system, visit the fee-for-service Implementation website below or email the Supports Program Help Desk.
