AN ACT CONCERNING AN INNOVATION INCENTIVE PROGRAM FOR NONPROFIT PROVIDERS OF HUMAN SERVICES
SUMMARY: This act allows the Office of Policy and Management (OPM) secretary to establish an incentive program for human services providers that (1) have state contracts of no more than $1 million and (2) provide direct services to no more than 150 people enrolled in state-funded assistance programs in specific geographic regions of the state. Under the act, such programs include those that provide services to individuals with intellectual, physical, or mental disabilities, or autism spectrum disorder.
The act's incentive program may allow providers to keep a portion of any savings they realize from the contracted cost of services as long as they meet their state contract's requirements. The incentive program may also require that (1) providers use 50% of the savings they retain to expand services and (2) future contracted amounts for the same type of service are not reduced solely to reflect the savings a provider achieves.
EFFECTIVE DATE: July 1, 2017
