The Veterans Health Administration (VHA) has developed a new resource to look up Veteran Directed Care case-mix rates by state, county and case-mix level. For any Veterans enrolled in VD-HCBS on or after June 1, 2018,
VHA will no longer reimburse for the “Service Transition Assessment Rate” (STAR). Instead, VD-HCBS Providers will invoice for the county-based full-assessment or partial-assessment fee, included in this resource, to
cover any costs associated with enrolling or partially-enrolling a Veteran in VD-HCBS. In addition to billing the full or partial assessment fee, VD-HCBS providers should continue to submit monthly bills that include
the Veteran’s actual expenditures plus the monthly administrative fee.
