DOH to Submit State Plan Amendment to Restore Additional 1% to Medicaid Rates

Stephen Hanse and Carl Pucci

In today’s State Register, the DOH announced its intention to submit a State Plan Amendment (SPA) to CMS which would restore the additional 1% Medicaid payment to nursing homes, which had previously been used to fund the Universal Settlement. This 1% payment equates annually to approximately $70M in total.

This restoration, which is subject to CMS SPA approval, would be retroactive to 11/1/20.  NYSHFA is in discussions with DOH regarding this restoration and will continue to provide updates as this matter progresses.
