Rates and Payments

The Contractor is paid a rate of $500 for each valid statewide referral received during the month and also has the opportunity to earn performance pay.  The Contractor shall receive a performance-based payment for achieving monthly targets for each applicable performance measure included in the contract, in addition to the $500 rate per valid referral.  Performance-based pay is contingent on performance results achieved in a month.  If a performance measure is not fully achieved, no performance-based payment associated with that performance measure is made for the month. 

The Community Care contract is a performance-based contract.  A portion of the Contractor’s payment is determined by the outcome of families receiving services.  The following performance measures determine eligibility for performance pay.

Performance Measure 1 -   The percent of families referred to the Community Care Contractor who has a child adjudicated CINA and DHS ordered to provide supervision or placement within six months of the date of referral to Community Care will be five percent (5%) or less.  (If this measure is fully met, a payment of $9,428 per month is made).

Performance Measure 2 -   The percent of families referred to the Community Care Contractor who has a Confirmed or Confirmed and Placed (Founded) report of child abuse or neglect within twelve months where the actual incident occurred fourteen (14) days after the date of referral to Community Care will be nine percent (9%) or less.  (If this measure is fully met, a payment of $9,428 per month is made).

Performance Measure 3 - The Community Care Contractor will make in-person or telephone contact with all families referred to Community Care within fourteen (14) calendar days of the date of referral from DHS and at least eighty five percent (85%) of all high risk families will achieve successful completion of services when the Community Care service ends.  The risk level is determined by DHS at completion of the CPS Child Abuse Assessment Summary or the CPS Family Assessment Summary.  (If this measure is fully met, a payment of $9,428 per month is made).

Performance Measure 4 - The Community Care Contractor will make in-person or telephone contact with all families referred to Community Care within fourteen (14) calendar days of the date of referral from DHS and at least seventy five percent (75%) of all moderate risk families will achieve successful completion of services when the Community Care service ends.  The risk level is determined by DHS at completion of the CPS Child Abuse Assessment Summary or CPS Family Assessment Summary.  (If this measure is fully met, a payment of $9,428 per month is made).
