HB 2800: Relating to Behavioral Rehabilitation Services

HB 2800 increases the rates of Behavioral Rehabilitation Services levels that are sufficient to assure there is enough provider capacity to serve the highest needs children.  DCYF shall facilitate a stakeholder work group to design a Behavioral Rehabilitation Services rate payment methodology that is based on actual provider costs of care.

The Caseload Forecast Council is directed to forecast the number of youth expected to receive Behavioral Rehabilitation Services while involved in the foster care system. Expenditures for placements must be forecasted and budgeted as maintenance level costs.
