Development of Rate Assessment Tool

Prior to B&A’s formation, Gretchen Engquist of B&A designed a rate assessment tool for the DDD to use in determining the rate paid on a statewide basis to independent providers. The rate assessment tool evaluates environmental factors, distance, safety, behaviors, medical needs, activities of daily living (ADLs) and the availability of nonpaid caregivers that can assist the paid independent provider. An automated scoring system and database was also developed as part of this process. B&A staff is currently responsible for the maintenance of the rate assessment tool.
