Guidehouse, the Department's rate reform vendor, is accepting written comments until March 25, 2024. The Department will then respond in writing to comments with an explanation of whether and how the feedback was incorporated into the final rate determination.
 
As providers your feedback is very important! MHCA has created this template to help members draft their response to the proposed rate model. Please note that feedback via this on-line survey process is specific to the vendor's presentations on March 7 and 8 and there are two separate feedback collection links.
