  • What is the purpose of the cost reporting tool?

    The tool is designed to collect and analyze the reasonable and necessary costs of providing EDWP and ICWP services. 

    Your participation is crucial to forming a basis for potential change, if deemed applicable, through the rate study. 

    This effort is part of an ongoing rate methodology study, to assess the potential need for changes in the current payment methodology for EDWP and ICWP services.
