ILS Rate Issue highlights from the LAO Report :

  • Independent living services: This will be an important service as the system becomes more “person-centered,” yet the rate model proposes an aggregate rate decrease.
  • Rate Model Readiness. Rate models in these four categories are relatively refined, with at least two major exceptions—the wage assumption for independent living services (potentially too low) and the administrative cost assumption for participant-directed respite (administrative costs currently excluded).
