For almost 20 years, Developmental Services Network (DSN) has served its members as California's only trade association dedicated exclusively to providers of Intermediate Care Facility (ICF) services for people with intellectual disabilities. Working with statewide recognized consultants and a dedicated Board of Directors, DSN continues to work tirelessly on regulatory and legislative issues to make certain our members have the best representation in California. Our recent work on your behalf has included:
- Ensuring that our Supplemental Payment, funded by Proposition 56 dollars, was continued through 2019.
- Collaboration with DSN members to obtain in excess of $100,000 in reimbursements for past claims owed by several Medi-Cal Managed Care Plans.
- Clarified the treatment authorization (TAR) process with the Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) to assist in understanding our facilities and whom we serve.
- DSN's efforts considerably increased the amount DHCS recognized in our rate for the minimum wage add-on from an intital proposal of less than $.70 per person per day to approximately $7.00 per person per day.
