DOH Issues 2017 Notice Rates

Carl J. Pucci in Finance & Reimbursement

DOH has issued the 11/1/16 “Notice Rates”, effective 1/1/17. Attached is the DAL, which provides further details on the capital and operating components of the rates, as well as rate appeal information. Members should note: 

  • 2017 capital rate attestation deadline is 12/2/16. Attestations are optional for providers who wish to contest their initial 2017 capital rate for calculation errors and/or data omissions.
  • 2017 operating rate – 2017 marks the first year of the fully-phased-in pricing methodology. (Following the five-year transition period from 2012 through 2016). Thus, line 11 - Transition Adjustment is intentionally left blank.
  • Case mix continues to reflect the 1/1/16 MDS period, pending further updates.

DOH has scheduled its monthly briefing next Tuesday, November 8, 2016. NYSHFA will provide a full member update on the notice rates as well as other key rate-setting issues later that afternoon.
