Are you eligible for the add-on rate? An add-on is an amount added to the regular reimbursement for certain services.

The Competency-Based Training and Longevity Add-On adds $0.39 per 15-minute unit to the regular reimbursement rate for Homemaker/Personal Care (HPC) services.

Direct support professionals (DSPs) interested in the add-on must meet two conditions:

  • Two years of paid full-time or equivalent experience providing support to people with developmental disabilities
  • Completion of 60 hours of applicable training

DODD has developed a process to enable DSPs to take training that can be counted toward the add-on. To learn about this training, visit here.

The add-on is only applied when eligible DSPs provide HPC. It does not apply to On- Site/On-Call, Participant-Directed HPC or any service other than routine HPC
