Rate Setting Tool

This tool was developed as a sample to help CCS providers in the CWHP region determine all of the costs associated with providing CCS.  It is NOT recommended that this tool simply be sent to a provider for their completion.  Rather, a relational approach is recommended that includes the following critical partners - the CCS Provider, the County CCS Service Director / Program Coordinator, and Fiscal Manager.  The CCS Regional Coordinator may also be included, if desired.  Questions that arise should be captured and used for quality improvement purposes.
