Nursing Home 3-month Limitation for Partial Cap – Enrollee Information

Deanna Stephenson

DOH has issued an update / correction to recent SNF enrollee notification. Please read below from DOH.

This is to inform you that some Managed Long Term Care enrollees received a notification from the New York State Department of Health that contained incorrect information. The letter contained information indicating that the MLTC enrollees would have a change in nursing home benefits on May 26, 2018. Please note that enrollees should disregard that letter, as MLTC nursing home benefits will remain unchanged at this time. The Department will be sending a clarification to those enrollees in the next few weeks to apologize and retract the information, and will provide contact information for any questions.

Further, please note that the mandated enrollment of newly identified permanently placed dual eligible individuals into MLTC partial capitation plans will continue until further notice from the Department.
