Fee For Service Implementation
Stay informed and up-to-date by regularly checking the DDD websites listed below for updates on implementation of the new Fee For Service (FFS) system and the Supports Program (SP) and Community Care (CCW) waivers.
Be sure to review the FFS Implementation Timeline which provides a general timeframe that DDD is following to address issues within the various components of the FFS system. Please note there are opportunities for stakeholders to provide input. DDD recommends viewing the timeline and webinar together.

If you have any fee for service-related questions/comments or to request a meeting date for any of the listed timeline topics you are interested in attending, contact the Division's Fee for Service Helpdesk at DDD.FeeForService@dhs.state.nj.us.
Families and providers should carefully review the services provided in both the SP and CCW along with the descriptions and limitations for each service. It is extremely important that any service you or your family member with I/DD is currently receiving and plan to continue in the FFS system can be matched with one of the services available under the SP and CCW. Providers must be able to fit a current service to a waiver service based on these definitions and limitations in order to provide the service and bill Medicaid. If you have a concern about whether a particular service will be covered, be sure discuss with your provider as soon as possible. You can obtain a copy of the waivers at:

Remember: the more you know and understand about FFS and waiver services, the more effective you will be in advocating for your family member.
