Performance-Based Incentive Payments

On October 30, 2013, the Department of Human Services (DHS) issued the eighth annual Request for Proposals (RFP) for Nursing Facility Performance-Based Incentive Payments. Effective July 1, 2006, nursing facilities may contract with the Department to earn performance-incentive Medical Assistance (MA) payments of up to five percent of the operating payment rate. The incentive payments are time-limited rate adjustments. The Department will implement the eighth round of performance-based incentive payments on or after July 1, 2014. Funding available to implement new projects under this provision for fiscal year ending June 30, 2015 is equal to approximately $3.1 million (state share).
