The National Adult Day Services Association (NADSA) supports rate increase efforts in Florida.

The National Adult Day Services Association (NADSA) supports rate increase efforts in Florida.

In a letter to Florida's Governor DeSantis, the National Adult Day Services Association (NADSA) supports rate increase efforts while the Florida Adult Day Services Association (FADSA) plans a visit to Tallahassee in the upcoming weeks.

Adult Day Services play a critical role in the home and community-based services offered by Medicaid to Floridians at risk of nursing home placement through the state. FADSA forecasts a widespread loss of day programs if state legislators and the Governor's office don't act quickly. The effects of the $15 minimum (over 70% increase over 2021 wages) wage for direct care workers, increased cost of living, and increased cost of goods and PPE because of the pandemic can lead to the perfect storm of state-wide closures because programs cannot sustain the cost of care on decade old reimbursement rates.

Adult Day Care providers have not seen a significant rate increase over a decade and cannot pass the cost down to consumers.
