Update on HCBS Rate Increases

The Virginia Department of Medical Assistance Services (DMAS) values the important work of home and community-based care providers, including providers of services for physical and behavioral health needs. We understand the challenges they have faced over the past year as they continue to ensure our members have access to critical services during the COVID-19 pandemic. The budget passed during the August 2021 special session includes a 12.5% increase for community based service providers starting July 1, 2021. DMAS is currently assessing impacts across a variety of HCBS services and will issue guidance as soon as possible.
