Increased reimbursement rates (TRI) are only applicable during CONFIRMED outbreaks and for the times the outbreak is open. These funds are designed for assisting with the extra cost of handling COVID in your facility and there are rules on how you use them of course.
As a note, if the facility does not want the increased rates, then they are not obligated to get them. It's an option. The outbreak and response stays the same but no extra billing changes are necessary. If there are any discrepancies about dates etc – please contact Joel Vail, Maine CDC Epi (Joel.Vail@maine.gov) directly with a line list and he is willing to audit or validate any data to ensure CDC systems are up to date.
