UPDATE: Indiana Medicaid Nursing Facility Value Based Purchasing – Change is Coming!

In May, IHCA reported coming change to the Indiana Medicaid Value Based Purchasing program.  Indiana Medicaid has been updating its modeling on the change and one of the new domains, Facility Staff Retention, required collection of data from facilities across the state.  The data collection exercise started in May and was intended to be done by early June, but some extensions of time were granted until June 15th for data submission.  Indiana Medicaid informed IHCA that an updated model would be provided to us in mid-July. 

Please review the May newsletter article to familiarize yourself with the new domains being proposed. There will also be a breakout session at the IHCA Convention & Expo on this topic. The new methodology will likely be used for Medicaid rates as of July 1, 2018, just about a year away.
