Attorney Bruce McGlauflin worked with ANCOR, a national organization, to draft model State legislation called the “Home and Community-Based Services Reimbursement Rate Act.” ANCOR is the American Network of Community Options and Resources, a nonprofit association representing more than 1200 provider organizations that deliver community services to people with disabilities. The model legislation is designed to be enacted at the State level to govern the process of setting Medicaid reimbursement rates for community service providers. ANCOR was motivated to develop the draft legislation in response to a patchwork regulatory system that has produced inconsistent and inaccurate rate setting procedures that have caused instability and disruption in the network of providers and the system of services, evidenced by long wait lists, high turnover rates and vacancies for direct support professionals, and the closure of provider programs and facilities.
