As you know by now, many of you received mid-point rates for various procedure codes. Mid-point rates were established for all procedure codes in four regions of the state. Today, ODP issued the following announcement:
Many providers who are a new provider, are providing a new service or have opened a new service location have been assigned a mid-point rate.
Some providers have contacted ODP with concerns the mid-point rate was too high for their service organization and would create issues for P/FDS recipients. The high rates would force a reduction in services for those people at the P/FDS cap.
On order to assess this situation, ODP is requesting any provider assigned the mid-point rate that believes the rate is too high contact their regional ODP office with the following information:
