Payment for Services/Fee Schedule for CRP Contracts
April 25, 2011
January 18, 2013
This policy will be reviewed and updated as needed.
To provide guidelines for determining costs for services provided by the Community Rehabilitation Providers (CRPs) through Division of Blind Services (DBS) contracts.
34 CFR 361.50 (c)
DBS will establish fee rates for the CRPs that are designed to ensure a reasonable cost for all programs, including, but not limited to, vocational rehabilitation services, the Blind Babies program, and independent living services. The fee rates are subject to change based on a periodic analysis of the cost to deliver DBS services in Florida, funding level, and provider past performance. The fee rates will be translated into an annual fixed amount per client served and contract amounts determined accordingly. DBS will ensure the completion of the cost analysis every five years or more frequently as financial climates may indicate.
