Modifications are introduced to a rotationally adiabatic model developed and successfully applied by Clary to describe rotational autoionization of dipole-bound molecular anions. These modifications address branching ratios for forming neutrals in various final rotational states. They also produce rate-enhancement corrections to the original model in the neighborhoods of channel openings. Example calculations are presented and the essential ingredients of the corrections are tabulated in a manner that permits straight-forward application to any linear or pseudo-linear anion.
