Our message is simple:
ADHC programs were ordered closed during COVID-19 and have still not recovered. More than 70 of the 116 ADHC programs still remain closed. In order to reopen and rebuild, ADHC providers need a 20% increase the Medicaid ADHC program rate and ADHC transportation rate to cover wages, and the increased cost of care and services. ADHC rates are over 15 years old, aside from a mere increase of 1% last year, and must be updated. The Governor proposed a 5% increase for their sponsoring nursing homes in last week’s budget. ADHC programs need to be included in any Medicaid increase and it should be substantially higher than 5%.
Please review the linked documents for more detail. Please give me a call or email if you'd like me to schedule meetings for you.
