Public Notice Regarding Changes in Statewide Methods and Standards for
Setting Payments for Medicaid Enrolled Nursing Facilities

The OMPP proposes to modify the rate setting formula for nursing facilities and to extend the quality assessment fee (QAF) enhanced reimbursement provisions through June 30, 2017.
