Community Services Reimbursement Rate Commission

The Community Services Reimbursement Rate Commission (CSRRC) is an independent commission within the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DHMH). The commission is concerned with issues regarding community services for individuals with developmental disabilities or psychiatric disabilities, with particular emphasis on:

  • The rates paid to providers
  • Updating of rates
  • Wage rates of direct care workers
  • Measurement of quality and outcomes
  • Uncompensated care
  • Consumer safety costs


Our meetings are open to the public and we encourage you to come and give us feedback. We are here to collect and distribute information, so we need people like you to give us insights.

The CSRRC is no longer operational and all future meetings for 2014 have been cancelled. For information regarding this development, you may consult the minutes of our January 14, 2014 meeting, which can be accessed through the "Meetings" link below.
