Public Notice Regarding Changes in Statewide Methods and Standards for
Medicaid Payments for Home Health Agencies

In accordance with the public notice requirements of 42 CFR 447.205, 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 Medicaid services provided by enrolled home health agencies.

The OMPP proposes to continue the five percent (5%) reduction that is currently set to expire on June 30, 2013, for rates paid to home health agencies under the Medicaid state plan and state regulations at 405 IAC 1-4.2, as amended by LSA Document #11-381(E), posted at 20110629-IR-405110381ERA.

This change in reimbursement is necessary in order to remain within the available Medicaid appropriation. It is estimated that the fiscal impact of these changes will be an approximate savings of state and federal expenditures of $16.5 million for SFY 2014 and $19.3 million for SFY 2015.

A copy of this notice is now on file at the Indiana Government Center South, 402 West Washington Street, Room W451, Indianapolis, Indiana and open for public inspection.
