The deadline to request a rate correction from the New York State Department of Health (DOH) is February 15, 2016 for organizations that received their new rates as of November 16, 2015. If there are errors in the DOH’s rate calculation that results in a change of more than $5,000 to your annual reimbursement for your Day Habilitation, Residential Habilitation, Respite, and Prevocational Services programs based on OPWDD’s Rate Rationalization, you can request a rate correction within 90 days of receiving your new rate or 90 days of the first day in the rate period, whichever is later.

Cerini & Associates has developed a rate calculator that can verify the accuracy of the DOH’s Rate Calculation and ensure that you are being paid at the proper rates. If you’d like us to review your newly-calculated rates, please let us know. We’re here to help.
