Distributing Supplemental Payments for Medicaid Enrolled Nursing Facilities
In accordance with the public notice requirements of 42 CFR 447.205 and Section 1902(a)(13)(A) of the Social Security Act, the Indiana Family and Social Services Administration (IFSSA), Office of Medicaid Policy and Planning (OMPP) publishes this notice of proposed changes to the reimbursement methodology for nursing facilities (NFs).
The OMPP proposes to continue the five percent (5%) reduction that is currently set to expire on June 30, 2013, for rates paid to nursing facilities, under the Medicaid state plan and state regulations, at 405 IAC 1-14.6
, as amended by LSA Document #11-380(E), posted at 20110629-IR-405110380ERA
