Medicaid reimbursement for FFS states

  • 1.  Medicaid reimbursement for FFS states

    All, our state Medicaid office is balking at paying a set payment per month during the crisis since we are FFS. We've asked for increase payments for our adult/children group homes as our costs have increased substantially due to staffing, OT, food, etc. Our reimbursement was barely breakeven prior to the crisis. Medicaid is saying that CMS won't let them pay for non-treatment items (i.e., room & board, etc.) even during the crisis. Have any of your states gotten around this and how? Thanks and stay safe, Mary Windecker,
