Missouri Division of Developmental Disabilities Targeted Case Management (TCM), Home and Community Based Waiver Services (HCBS), and Preadmission Screening and Resident Review (PASRR) – Nursing Home Reform are federal programs administered by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Division of Developmental Disabilities Targeted Case Management, Home and Community Based waivers, and Preadmission Screening and Resident Reviews are partly funded through federal dollars.

- Rate Study
In 2022, the State engaged Mercer to conduct a rate study refresh for Intellectual Disabilities/Developmental Disabilities (ID/DD) 1915(c) waiver services. The main goals of the rate study refresh include:
- Comply with Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) requirements to formally review 1915(c) rates at least once every five years
- Compile and analyze the most current Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) market data to inform key cost components such as wages and employee-related expenses (e.g., health insurance, other employee benefits, employee-related taxes, workers’ compensation insurance)
- Conduct targeted analyses on other assumptions that providers request be looked at more closely
Mercer initiated the rate study in April 2022 and completed the analysis and modeling work in mid-December 2022. The State engages with the provider community throughout the rate study process in order to understand your concerns, share updates along the way, and gather your feedback. For the key steps in the rate study, please refer to the graphic below. The 2022 HCBS Rate Study provides a summary of the analysis conducted and outlines the results of the rate study.
