Market Price Survey
The CCRR are completing the MPS now through March, make sure you give them you rate information for each age and price break down. This is the survey that is used to set and negotiate rates. Those of you who believe your DHS rates are low, this is your opportunity to let the State know. If they don't call, you call them and let them know you want to do a rate update.
They will not tell you they are collecting the information for the survey they will treat it like a regular update. That is why it is important to participate this time.
Fairshare and Membership Dues Increase
Also a reminder that membership voted to increase dues last October. The dues change to $35 begins January 2014. You can also find membership applications under the downloads section of this website.
