DEVELOPMENTAL SERVICES NETWORK (DSN)
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.
DSN provides its members with readily available information to assist them with owning and operating one or multiple Intermediate Care Facilities. We provide a forum for members where questions and constructive conversations are encouraged to assist the community at large. We keep members informed with regulatory updates and legislative updates, as well as pertinent information on laws that emerge from the State’s Capitol and at the federal level.
Learning is critical to our members and DSN is committed to providing valuable programs.
A comprehensive and practical training program for new and current QIDPs. (These programs are held in person and will be planned as soon as that is again possible.)
