The MDH Rate Review Advisory Group (RRAG) was established by the Maryland Department of Health. The purpose of the group is to provide a formal, consistent, and unified approach for stakeholders of the Developmental Disabilities Administration Medicaid rates. These Medicaid rates are for Home and Community Based Waiver services for approximately 18,000 Marylanders. The RRAG includes representation of a wide array of services and diverse stakeholders across the state.

The RRAG is a critical component of the DDA annual rate review process. This process aligns with other Medicaid rate reviews and continues an open structure to support in-depth reviews of rates, rate components, and policies impacting rates and operationalization. 

Meetings will occur monthly from January until August 2023 as listed in the panel above. Members of the public who would like to observe the meetings can register below. Register once and get reminders for each meeting via GoToWebinar. Links will be sent one day and one hour prior to the meeting. 

Meeting minutes will be made available following the meeting on the dedicated RRAG webpage available at; If you have any questions regarding registration, please contact Dr. Yemonja Smalls at
