Re: ICF/IID and MC/DD 3.5% Rate Increase Effective August 1, 2019
This Notice informs Intermediate Care Facilities for Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities (ICF/IIDs), Medically Complex for the Developmentally Disabled Facilities (MC/DDs), and associated Developmental Training providers that the Department received federal approval to implement the rate increases specified in Public Act 101-0010. The 3.5% rate increases are effective August 1, 2019.
Updated rates have been entered into the State’s payment system and the Department has systematically repriced claims that were paid at lower rates. Vouchers for the payment adjustments were generated and sent to the Comptroller this week. All newly submitted claims are being priced using the updated rates.
Please note that the rate increases, and subsequent payment adjustments, include developmental training service rates as well. The payment adjustments for these services will need to be passed on to the appropriate developmental training agency within 10 days as specified in administrative rule at 89 Ill. Adm. Code 140.646(d).
