SFY24 Rate Letters for providers of Section 67, NFs and Section 97, Appendix C, RCF have been posted on the secure Health PAS Online Portal. Rates are effective as of July 1, 2023.

As shared earlier this month, SFY24 rates include COLA, in alignment with Maine P.L. 2021, Ch. 639. The COLA which affects rates for eligible services under NFs and RCFs is equal to an increase of 4.69% above the currently established rate(s).
