AN ACT to amend the mental hygiene law, in relation to the reimbursement
  of transportation services to and from day habilitation  programs  for
  people with developmental disabilities

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. The legislature finds that reimbursement  for  day  habili-
tation to and from transportation services is implemented and controlled
through  a  process  knows  as  "rate rationalization." Through the rate
rationalization process these funds are provided to licensed day habili-
tation providers to assure that individuals with developmental disabili-
ties are safely transported within a  reasonable  amount  of  time  from
their  homes  to  licensed day habilitation sites. The implementation of
rate rationalization has lead to widespread complaints that since  fund-
ing  for  transportation  to  and from day habilitation program sites is
based on financial data that is not contemporaneous with current  costs,
providers  are unable to reduce the length of time traveling to and from
day habilitation sites. In those situations where providers have reduced
travel time, for their day habilitation participants, their  costs  have
increased, resulting in unreimbursed costs for these services. Compound-
ing  this  problem, rate rationalization reimbursement is based on a per
day per person methodology, which is inconsistent with  the  many  situ-
ations  where  providers  must contract for transportation services paid
for based on a per vehicle per day charge.
  S 2. The mental hygiene law is amended by adding a new  section  13.18
to read as follows:
S 13.18 TRANSPORTATION REIMBURSEMENT.
  THE COMMISSIONER OF THE OFFICE FOR PEOPLE WITH DEVELOPMENTAL DISABILI-
TIES,  IN COLLABORATION WITH THE COMMISSIONER OF HEALTH, SHALL DEVELOP A
PLAN TO ASSURE THAT TRANSPORTATION REIMBURSEMENT  TO  PROVIDERS  OF  DAY

  on the recruitment and retention of direct support professionals work-
  ing with people with developmental disabilities

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1.  Legislative  findings.  The Legislature hereby finds that
Direct Support Professionals (DSPs) are the lynchpin of  the  system  of
supports for people with developmental disabilities. These dedicated and
skilled direct support professionals allow more than 100,000 New Yorkers
to lead safe, fulfilling lives.  More than 90% of all funding to support
the  salaries  of these highly trained professionals comes from Medicaid
or other state funds.
  The Legislature further finds the current  funding  for  these  highly
trained  professionals  is  insufficient to pay a fair wage for the work
these skilled professionals do, leaving these dedicated workers in short
supply.  Recent surveys by voluntary  agencies  employing  these  valued
professionals  indicate  a  high  and increasing statewide vacancy rate,
high and increasing  staff  turnover  rates  and  increasing  difficulty
recruiting and retaining these valuable employees.
  The  Legislature  further  finds  that  women  and  minorities are the
cornerstone of the direct support professional  workforce  in  New  York
State.  According to recent surveys, 73 percent of direct care staff are
women and 56.5 percent are either African-American, black or of Hispanic
and Latino origin. It is critically important  that  these  skilled  and
dedicated professionals receive the fair wage they deserve, for the work
they do.
  The  Legislature further finds that in his April 2012 Report to Gover-
nor Cuomo, Clarence Sundram, the Governor's Special Advisor  on  Vulner-
able  Persons,  found  that "a strong, well trained and committed direct
support staff" is essential to safeguard and care for  vulnerable  indi-
