DOH Implements 1% Medicaid Cut

Carl J. Pucci

DOH has provided details on the implementation of the 1% Medicaid cut. This reduction will be taken via an adjustment to Medicaid FFS claims processed (vs. a rate reduction) and will be retroactive to dates of service on or after 1/1/20. The 1% reduction will then be applied going forward to each weekly Medicaid payment. The reduction will be reflected in upcoming Medicaid Cycle #2219 (check release date of 3/18/20). The attached DOH notice provides further details.
