Judge orders state to update human service provider rates

Printer-friendly version

The new Baker administration has been ordered by a Superior Court judge to fully implement within the next 90 days a 2008 law aimed at updating rates paid to human service providers after a coalition sued Gov. Deval Patrick’s team over the summer for missing the law’s deadline.

Superior Court Judge Mitchell Kaplan ruled in favor of the plaintiffs on Tuesday, finding that the Patrick administration, by its own admission, failed to fully implement Chapter 257 by the Jan. 1, 2014 deadline imposed by the law.

...

The coalition behind the lawsuit included the Massachusetts Council of Human Service Providers, the Association for Behavioral Healthcare, the Association of Developmental Disabilities Providers, Massachusetts Early Intervention Consortium and the Children’s League of Massachusetts.
