Resolve, To Require the Department of Health and Human Services To Provide Supplemental Reimbursement to Adult Family Care Homes and Residential Care Facilities in Remote Island Locations
Sec. 1. Department of Health and Human Services to amend rules. Resolved: That the Department of Health and Human Services shall amend its rules in Chapter 101, MaineCare Benefits Manual, Chapter II, Section 2; Chapter III, Section 2; and Chapter III, Section 97, Appendix C and in Chapter 115, Principles of Reimbursement for Residential Care Facilities - Room and Board Costs in order to provide supplemental MaineCare reimbursement to both adult family care homes and residential care facilities in remote island locations. The rules must provide that eligible remote island adult family care homes and residential care facilities are those located on an island not connected to the mainland by a bridge. The rules must provide eligible homes and facilities with a supplemental payment of 15% to be added to their MaineCare rate. Eligible homes and facilities must be allowed to retain this supplemental payment in addition to the total allowable rate for private nonmedical institution direct care services, room and board and personal care services costs otherwise determined under those rules.
This resolve requires the Department of Health and Human Services to amend its rules governing MaineCare reimbursement for both adult family care services and private nonmedical institution services to provide supplemental MaineCare reimbursement of an additional 15% to adult family care homes and residential care facilities in remote island locations.
