Governor Doug Ducey and the Arizona State Legislature approved funding in the most recent Legislative session that will allow the Arizona Department of Economic Security (DES) Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD) to increase rates paid to Providers for DDD funded services.
A series of public forums will be hosted by DDD in July 2019. We encourage members, families and Providers to attend. At the forums they can provide input about the services they feel are in most need of rate increases. As DDD develops provider rate increases using funding provided in the FY2020 budget, the Department will take into account feedback from these forums, written comments submitted to the department, and an analysis of data including but not limited to services with unassigned authorizations, network adequacy, and changes in the minimum wage.
Members, families, advocates and providers who cannot attend a meeting in person can download and review the presentation and submit their comments using the form below. The public comment period will end on August 8, 2019 at 5:00 p.m.
