The Special Legislative Commission to Study and Evaluate the Impact of “Project Sustainability” in the State of Rhode Island will be meeting this Wednesday, December 12 at 3:00 pm in the Senate Lounge of the State House.  The commission is chaired by Sen. Louis P. DiPalma (D-Dist. 12, Middletown, Little Compton, Tiverton, Newport).

The commission will review the Current State Assessment survey responses that were distributed to commission members.  The commission will use this information to elicit support from experts and best practices to inform future commission meetings.  The commission asked members to complete the survey (and distribute it to individuals/families/any other interested parties) to provide some different perspectives about the current state of Rhode Island’s developmentally disabled service system.

Project Sustainability, which was enacted in the Department of Behavioral Healthcare, Developmental Disabilities and Hospitals’ (BHDDH) FY2012 budget, is the fee-for-service reimbursement and payment system for Medicaid supported adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

The 19-member commission consists of Senator DiPalma as chairman, two consumer advocates, several representatives from BHDDH and the Executive Office of Health and Human Services, other patient advocates, and representatives from different service providers.
