Supplemental Rate Increases

General Information

Chapter 28, Statutes of 2019 (SB 81, Committee on Budget and Fiscal Review), provided the Department of Developmental Services (DDS) with time-limited funding to provide supplemental rate increases for specified services effective January 1, 2020 through December 31, 2021, contingent upon federal approval of matching federal funds. The rate increases shall be suspended at the end of this period unless certain conditions, specified in SB 81, apply.

Specified Services Receiving Rate Increases

The following chart with percentage increases for specified services receiving an increase, includes service codes in which rates are set by the department, through negotiation between regional centers and service providers, in regulations, supported employment and vouchered community-based services: Supplemental Rate Increases Percentage Chart.


The supplemental rate increase will be applied as a percentage increase to rates in effect on December 31, 2019, less the amount of any one-time rate increases for developmental services, as authorized in the 2018 Budget Act.

Next Steps

DDS will submit a request for approval for matching federal funds to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), following a 30-day public notice period. CMS has approximately 90 days to review the request. Contingent upon CMS approval, the rate increase will be implemented effective January 1, 2020.
