DSP Wage Increase Verification

You may be aware that New Jersey’s FY2020 budget included funding for a direct support professional (DSP) wage increase. To accommodate that increase, DDD increased fee-for-services reimbursement rates for DSP services: Career Planning, Community-Based Supports, Community Inclusion Services, Day Habilitation, Individual Supports, Prevocational Training, Respite, and Supported Employment.

To ensure that providers who received the rate increases passed the increases along to DSPs, DDD has distributed DSP Wage Reporting Instructions, a DSP Wage Report Template and a Sample DSP Wage Report via email to agencies that provide one or more of the eight impacted services. Through this reporting, agencies must demonstrate that the increases have been passed through to DSP wages. If an agency in receipt of the rate increases refuses to or cannot demonstrate that the funding was passed through to DSP wages, that agency will be required to return the increased funding to the state.

Graduates Timeline Now Available

DDD’s Timeline for Students Exiting School and Turning 21, commonly known as the Graduates Timeline, is now available. This timeline provides next steps for students who are turning 21, exiting the school system, and interested in accessing adult services through DDD. Because the fee-for-service transition is nearing completion and the information will remain the same going forward, the timeline is no longer specific to a graduating year

Vendor Billing Through Public Partnerships: Changes and Guidance

The Division’s transition to a Fiscal/Employer Agent (F/EA) model of self-directed services, with Public Partnerships serving as the fiscal intermediary, introduced individuals, families and community vendors to an new billing process for vendor services. Together, the Division and Public Partnerships have identified areas of the billing process in need of improvement. Written guidance has been developed to notify individuals/families and vendors about a newly-developed Request for Payment form, as well as billing process requirements already in place but perhaps not clearly understood.

Please review the important notice, New Request for Payment Form and Updated Guidance on Vendor Billing through Public Partnerships. This document, and the related PPL Request for Payment and PPL Authorized Representative Form, have been emailed by DDD to all individuals and vendors currently participating in DDD self-directed vendor services through Public Partnerships. If you receive this information and it does not apply to you, please disregard it.

The revised Authorized Representative Form is already available on PPL’s NJDDD website and the new Request for Payment form will be available there on September 3. However, both of these forms can begin to be used immediately.

Questions can be directed to DDD’s Fee-for Service Helpdesk: DDD.FeeForService@dhs.state.nj.us.

UPDATE: FY2020 DSP Wage Increase

As communicated previously, the Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD) will modify fee-for-service rates for eight impacted services* and all budgets in iRecord to accommodate the direct support professional (DSP) wage increase included in New Jersey’s FY2020 budget.

The new implementation date for the FY2020 rate and budget modifications is 8/18/2019. The rate increases are retroactive to July 1.

Please see the revised FY2020 Rate Increase Grid and FY2020 DSP Wage Increase FAQs for more information.

Providers who have submitted claims for services rendered July 1 forward have two options: (1) wait for Medicaid to internally re-adjudicate those claims at the increased rates (DDD does not have a timeframe for this), or (2) cancel those claims and resubmit them at the higher rates. DXC/Medicaid will begin to reimburse claims at the higher rates as soon as the new rates are reflected in iRecord.

Provider agencies are required to use both the FY2019 and FY2020 rate increases to increase the hourly wages for all direct support professionals. For rate increases received in FY2020, bonus payments may be made to cover the interim period from July 1 through the date providers implement the increase to hourly wages. Providers should implement the wage increase as soon as practicable. DDD will be distributing a template to providers to demonstrate the rate increases were passed on to all DSPs as the law requires.

NJ Human Services on Tuesday Distributed More Than 16,000 Naloxone Packs to Reverse Opioid Overdoses

NJ Sees High Demand on Tuesday’s Free, Anonymous Naloxone Distribution Day Across the State

(TRENTON) – In what is believed to be the largest single-day public distribution of naloxone in the country, the New Jersey Department of Human Services on Tuesday distributed more than 16,000 packs of naloxone — the opioid overdose reversal drug commonly known as Narcan — to New Jerseyans.

The distribution was part of the Department’s initiative to provide naloxone for free and anonymously at pharmacies throughout the state.

Each pack contained two doses of naloxone nasal spray, resulting in more than 32,000 doses distributed in one day.  The Department encourages individuals to carry naloxone and to be prepared to help intervene and reverse opioid overdoses.

“Our goal is to save lives,” Human Services Commissioner Carole Johnson said. “We launched our free naloxone day initiative to give residents a lifesaving tool and the chance to save friends, loved ones and community members.  New Jerseyans responded in overwhelming numbers, and I want to thank everyone who took the opportunity to get naloxone and is now prepared to help stop overdoses and turn the tide of this epidemic.”

NJ Human Services made naloxone available for free and without individual prescriptions at 174 pharmacies. More than 3,000 New Jerseyans died of drug overdoses in 2018.

“Individuals with opioid addiction now have a better chance of surviving an overdose and getting connected to treatment, thanks to the willingness of New Jerseyans to carry naloxone and help us tackle this critical challenge in our State.” Commissioner Johnson said. “New Jerseyans have sent a message – we want to save lives.”

Pharmacist Chris Yanoschak of Boyt Drugs in Metuchen said he was “overwhelmed” by some of the stories people shared about losing loved ones and wanting to be prepared to try to save someone else. The pharmacy distributed 135 boxes on Tuesday.

“We had a high demand, about one person every five minutes,” Yanoschak said. “I wasn’t surprised there was a good turnout because there were no questions asked, but it has affected so many more people than I thought. We have lost some young ones in town so we had a lot of concerned parents too. It was a great way for people to try to help out.”

Pharmacist Chirag Patel of the Walgreens on Route 33 in Hamilton called the day a “unique experience.” The pharmacy distributed 168 boxes.

“I was happy to see so many people came out to help others,” Patel said. “I connected with numerous individuals throughout the day. Without asking, some shared their stories of their family and friends who died from an opioid overdose. Everyone was very appreciative of having our store participate in this event. I’m proud I was able to help families and caregivers and potentially save someone’s life.”

Free naloxone day also was an opportunity to share information about the importance of getting connected to treatment.  Commissioner Johnson urged anyone needing help with addiction to call the State’s treatment assistance hotline anytime day or night at 1-844-REACHNJ.

“Treatment works and recovery is possible,” Commissioner Johnson said.

The Governor’s opioid initiative funded this project and is also funding numerous other interventions to stop overdoses, improve access to treatment, support recovery and strengthen enforcement.  Examples of recent actions include:

  • Stop Overdoses
    o   Expanding access to naloxone
    o   Investing in educating communities about alternatives to prescription opioids
    o   Reducing opioid prescribing
  • Improve Access to Treatment
    o   Training more physicians and advanced practice nurses to provide medication-assisted treatment, the clinical standard for treating opioid addiction
    o   Changing Medicaid rules to make it easier to get medication-assisted treatment for opioid addiction, including removing prior authorization requirements for this treatment
    o   Creating new Medicaid Centers of Excellence for opioid treatment
    o   Providing treatment to pregnant women and moms, individuals leaving prisons, and other vulnerable populations
  • Support People in Recovery
    o   Helping people in recovery find a path to employment
    o   Assisting people in recovery with housing
  • Strengthen Enforcement
    o   Fighting every day to take down the sources of fentanyl and heroin supply in our state

The Murphy Administration is committed to fighting the opioid epidemic on all fronts and, through the Governor’s opioid initiative, will continue to take action to help New Jerseyans get connected to treatment and supported in recovery.

Governor Boosts Care for Co-Occurring Developmental Disabilities & Mental Health Conditions

Hello Division Constituents and Community Partners,
I am happy to forward an important press release about the Murphy administration’s commitment to the safety and well-being of New Jersey residents with developmental disabilities, as reflected in the Governor’s proposed funding increases for FY2020. The full press release is available below and on the Department of Human Services website and I encourage you to read and share it with others.

Thank you.
Jonathan Seifried, Assistant Commissioner
New Jersey Department of Human Services Division of Developmental Disabilities

(TRENTON) – Governor Phil Murphy has announced $22.5 million in proposed new investments to care for individuals with developmental disabilities, including new funding for individuals diagnosed with both developmental disabilities and mental health conditions.

“Our budget will provide critical resources to allow individuals with both developmental disabilities and mental health challenges to thrive in their communities,” Governor Murphy said during his Tuesday Budget Address.

“The Murphy Administration is committed to improved programs and services for individuals dually diagnosed with developmental disabilities and mental health concerns,” said Human Services Commissioner Carole Johnson. “These individuals represent a particularly vulnerable population and require comprehensive coordinated treatment and support to help them live as independently as possible in the community. New innovations are crucial and with this initiative we’re increasing our capacity to care for these individuals and give them the services they need.”

The new funding for individuals with developmental disabilities and mental health conditions would include $7 million proposed in Governor Murphy’s budget for next fiscal year. This funding would help garner $2.5 million in matching federal funds, for a total of $9.5 million.

The money would be used to:

  • Double capacity of the Division of Developmental Disabilities community-based emergency beds by adding 20 new beds across the state, which can reduce the need for hospitalizations and get people in crisis home sooner;
  • Develop a Medicaid Behavioral Health Home pilot program that would invest in building the capacity of health care providers to serve individuals with developmental disabilities and mental health issues; and
  • Conduct a statewide review of in-patient stabilization services and funding mechanisms.

The Governor’s budget plan also calls for an additional $15.5 million in state funding to continue New Jersey’s emphasis on home and community-based services.

“Taken as a whole, these improvements represent an expansive effort to ensure the best possible care for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities,” said Human Services Deputy Commissioner Sarah Adelman. “The Murphy Administration is strongly committed to supporting the needs of individuals with developmental disabilities and their families and caregivers”

“Those with both developmental and intellectual disabilities often require specialized care that addresses their unique needs,” said Senator Joe Vitale (D-Middlesex), chair of the Senate Health, Human Services and Senior Citizens Committee. “This is a public health issue that deserves more attention and additional support. These funds will be put to good use to help those with dual diagnoses meet the challenges they face and help their families to provide the care they need.  They should not be neglected as we work to treat mental illness in all its forms.”

“Expanding access to high quality care for individuals with mental health conditions and developmental disabilities will immeasurably improve the quality of life for them and their families,” said Assemblywoman Joann Downey (D-Monmouth), chair of the Assembly Human Services Committee. “These improvements will dedicate much-needed resources to the comprehensive programs and treatment these individuals need to meet the unique obstacles that come with these conditions. I fully support all efforts to extend a helping hand to these New Jersey residents and their loved ones.”

The budget plans were welcomed by parents and advocates.

“During my 20 year journey as a parent, advocate and healthcare provider, I have come to realize that there is no silver bullet that will fix the system. Instead, developing innovative, targeted programs like what the Murphy administration is proposing is what is needed,” said Stephanie Pratico, a Hamilton mother of two young adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities who was a guest of First Lady Tammy Murphy at Tuesday’s Budget Address by the governor. She is also Program Manager for the NJ Transition to Adult Comprehensive Care Program – a program for intellectually and developmentally disabled young adults – at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.  “Sadly, innovation, healthcare and government are rarely used in the same sentence in a positive light.  However, if we are to improve the quality of care for this vulnerable population, whose needs are complex, the private sector must partner with government to break the tired cookie-cutter molds that have languished in healthcare for too long. Embracing a model where new ideas are encouraged, tested and refined will accelerate the creation of new methods of delivering efficient, quality care that is tailored to the developmental disability population.”

“The Arc of New Jersey is grateful to the Governor for putting needed resources into the service delivery system that enables thousands of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities to live integrated lives in the community,” said Thomas Baffuto, executive director of The Arc of New Jersey. “Specifically, we applaud the addition of new funding to address the needs to those with I/DD and mental health needs. This segment of the population often requires specialized services and attention, and this new funding will help provide the critical supports in response to the unique challenges facing individuals with dual diagnosis and their families.”

“The innovation of a Medicaid Behavioral Health Home pilot program for people living with developmental disabilities and co-occurring mental health disorders and the continued emphasis on home and community-based services demonstrates Governor Murphy’s compassionate and innovative  investment in building New Jersey’s capacity to support and include individuals with disabilities and their families in our communities,” said Deborah M. Spitalnik, PhD, Executive Director of The Boggs Center on Developmental Disabilities at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School and chairwoman of New Jersey’s Medical Assistance Advisory Council (MAAC).
