Now Available: Medicaid Information Clearinghouse

The American Health Care Association & the National Center for Assisted Living (AHCA/NCAL) launched its first online Medicaid Information Clearinghouse last week.  The new tool is available exclusively for AHCA/NCAL members and is a one-stop shop to get answers and resources on the Medicaid program.

Members will be able to find background information about Medicaid and how it is changing, issue briefs of interest to the long term care sector, and state-specific information about nursing center payment policies in Medicaid.  The Clearinghouse also includes detailed information for nearly every state on the Medicaid payment methodology used to reimburse nursing centers.

The state-specific information available includes:

  • Current Federal Medical Assistance Percentages
  • Efforts to integrate care for people eligible for both Medicare and Medicaid
  • Links to state Medicaid webpages
  • Provider tax
  • Reimbursement policies
  • Managed long term care activity and more

Members should refer to this webpage on a regular basis for updates.
