Managed Long Term Care delayed to June 1 for New York City

March 26, 2014

The following policy announcement was recently posted delaying implementation of mandatory managed care for nursing home admissions to June 1, 2014. Initially posted on the Department of Health (DOH) Medicaid Update as starting on March 1, 2014, (click here), DOH first moved this date to April 1, 2014 with the hope that Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) will approve the final managed care transition plan by the same date. This new rule is actually in a PowerPoint Slide presentation found on DOH’s Medicaid Redesign web portal: Click to view PDF. Now, with apparently no CMS approval in sight, the date was once again moved to June 1, 2014.
