​​​​Intermediate Care Facilities

Developmentally Disabled (ICF/DD), Habilitative​​ (ICF/DD-H), Nursing (ICF/DD-N)

Effective August 1, 2021, in accordance with Assembly Bill 133 (Chapter 143, Statutes of 2021) the reimbursement rates for ICF/DD, ICF/DD-H, and ICF/DD-N facilities will be determined without applying any reduction, limitation, or increase, including the 3.7-percent increase, imposed by Welfare and Institutions Code sections 14105.191 and 14105.192. The reimbursement rates for these facilities will be established at the 65th percentile of the group's projected costs, including the projected cost of complying with new state or federal mandates and the quality assurance fee. The reimbursement rate will be inclusive of the Proposition 56 supplemental payment per diem amount received, if the Budget Act for that fiscal year appropriates funds for Proposition 56 supplemental payments.

Additionally, for dates of service August 1, 2021 through July 31, 2022, the reimbursement rates shall be the greater of the facility's new rate established as described above inclusive of Proposition 56 supplemental payments, or the approved Medi-Cal State Plan reimbursement rate temporarily increased during the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency, plus the Proposition 56 supplemental payment in effect for the facility on July 31, 2021.

There are no changes to the billing process. For claims billed with dates of service between August 1, 2021 and July 31, 2022, providers should continue to bill the rate year (RY) 2021-22 temporary increased COVID-19 rate, until the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency ends. Proposition 56 supplemental payments will continue automatically for eligible claims, as applicable. Retroactive payment adjustments will automatically be made as necessary by the fiscal intermediary through an Erroneous Payment Correction (EPC). No additional action will be necessary on the providers' part.
