DHHS restores NF special wage allowance to its full amount
We were therefore pleased that in the final rule, DHHS now agrees with our position and has restored the increase to 100% of what the Legislature approved. New rate letters will now be issued. Since this will be retroactive to 7/1/18, our understanding is that nursing facilities will have the option of rebilling for these funds, or waiting until time of settlement. Look for more information on this soon.
