NHQI / 1% Restoration and CRA Reconciliation Scheduled

Carl J. Pucci in Finance & Reimbursement

NYSHFA has confirmed with DOH that providers will see their upcoming Medicaid checks adjusted for the following: 

  • Cycle #2214 (check date 1/27/20) will be adjusted for the 2018 NHQI and two years of the 1% restoration. The 1% restoration payment represents the second of four planned retroactive payments which will bring facilities current by SFY 2022/23. Similar to last year, the effect of the NHQI will be combined with the 1% restoration supplemental payment to ease cash flow.
  • Cycle #2215 (check date 2/3/20) will be adjusted for the 2018 Cash Receipts Assessment (CRA) Reconciliation. DOH will post the CRA calculations on its website in the near future. 

DOH continues to work on the revised July 2019 rates. Members are again reminded that the two-week Medicaid lag will resume shortly after the rates are released, and should cash-plan accordingly.
