Medicaid Managed Care Delayed Until 10/1/14

Carl J. Pucci in Finance & Reimbursement

NYSHFA has just received word that DOH is again delaying the Medicaid Managed Care start date for downstate counties until 10/1/14 (upstate counties would start 4/1/15).  Below is the DOH notice:

As you know, the NH transition into managed care was not approved by CMS in order to implement on August 1, 2014.  In order for the State to secure the appropriate approvals from CMS, the transition of this benefit is being extended to October 1, 2014.   The Nursing Home Policy paper will be modified to reflect this date change and all dates will be extended based upon this proposed start date.  We apologize for any inconvenience these delays have caused, however, the State remains committed to implementing a smooth transition once CMS approval is obtained.
