Hello Vocational Rehabilitation Providers:
OOD has met with stakeholders at five regional VR Fee Schedule Listening Sessions, two Focus Listening Sessions, and two provider stakeholder focus groups. OOD has also reviewed written feedback. Please find attached a draft VR Fee Schedule update as well as a summary of the proposed changes.
Additional written feedback may be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org by May 19, 2022.
After this final round of feedback, OOD will review any additional written input on the VR Fee Schedule. OOD remains committed to matching the provider community’s sense of urgency, with the target date to have updated VR Fee Schedule language submitted to the Common Sense Initiative (CSI) (the first step of the rulemaking process) by June 1, with a target implementation date of October 1.
Thank you to everyone who has participated in this process and contributed to the proposed updates.
