QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

PERFORMANCE MEASURES: LVWDB has received several questions regarding the performance measures. At this time the LVWIB has not yet received the baseline for the measures although we know what the measures are and we published them in the RFP. If the Commonwealth negotiates the measures with us prior to the end of the program year we will inform our providers but will not hold providers accountable if they miss a measure this program year. If the measures are not made available until next program year we will negotiate the measures when we renew the contracts. In the meantime we know the previous baseline and we will work with new providers to meet the old baseline measures.
