Reminder: 2014 Wage Survey Due March 2nd

The Department of Medical Assistance Services (DMAS) has asked VHCA to remind members that the 2014 Wage Survey is due on Monday, March 2nd (see attached reminder posting in GoFileRoom on Monday with completion instructions).  On January 8th, DMAS’ contractor, Myers and Stauffer, sent the following:

The Department of Medical Assistance Services (DMAS) requests that nursing facilities provide wage data, to be used for the development of inflation factors, on an annual basis.  Completion of the wage survey is mandatory for all non-hospital based nursing facilities participating in Virginia Medicaid.  The data are needed to support the development of rates and must be collected in a manner more timely than cost reports.  Therefore, DMAS requires all non-hospital based facilities to complete this annual wage survey.

Please see the attached wage survey cover letter for directions on completing the wage survey.  The survey is due by March 2nd.  If you have any questions, please contact Felecia Hemby at 804.225.4324 or email Felicia.Hemby@dmas.virginia.gov.
