MLTC Transition to FFS - Upstate Implementation Delay

Stephen B Hanse in From the President

The Department of Health has informed NYSHFA that due to a just-identified systems problem, the scheduled transition of long-stay nursing home residents from MLTC to FFS in upstate areas (defined as all counties other than the 5 NYC boroughs) will NOT occur on March 1st. The DOH is unable to confirm at the present time whether the systems problem will impact the April 1st date for the New York City transition from MLTC to FFS. NYSHFA will continue to provide updates on the transition as we learn more from the DOH.
