On November 24, 2021 Indiana Medicaid released this publication to restart the COVID-19 Ready Nursing Facility Reimbursement.  Those nursing homes that qualify will obtain a 6% rate increase for all Medicaid residents.  The reimbursement is available for dates of service between November 22 and December 31, 2021.

  • Nursing Facilities that had already attested to being COVID-19 Ready in September and October 2021, do not need to sign another attestation form.  Instead those facilities need to confirm status by updating EMResources regarding your status and admissions capacities.
  • If a Nursing Facility is no longer COVID-19 Ready, please contact Derris Harrison at Indiana Medicaid.
  • For facilities needing to attest, complete the attestation form on Myers & Stauffer’s website (should be posted soon).
    • Currently, the attestation that was used in September is still on the website under announcements.  Providers that had not previously attested can use the September form until the November form is uploaded
