MaineCare Proposes Rule Changes for Nursing Facilities Principles of Reimbursement
Other noteworthy items include a change from 50% to 100% the percentage of the amount owed that nursing facilities must pay when the Division of Audit determines, from the as-filed cost report, that the nursing facility owes money to the Department; adding health savings accounts and flexible spending accounts to the list of Direct Care Cost Components; adding background checks and software costs and licensing fees to the list of allowable costs for the routine component of the rate (we recommended it be fixed cost); proposed language changes to allowable interest expenses being related to patient care; and proposed changes to the classification of purchased central office services.
