Home Care Survey Deadline is Oct. 16th

The Department of Health (DOH) has extended the due date for the home care Minimum Wage Reconciliation Survey to Oct. 16, 2017. Data from the survey will be used to reconcile actual Medicaid minimum wage costs to actual Medicaid minimum wage funding distributions and assist the state in projecting the required minimum wage funding going forward.

The following home care providers will be required to submit the survey:

  • Certified Home Health Agencies (CHHAs);
  • Licensed Home Care Services Agencies (LHCSAs);
  • Long Term Home Health Care Programs (LTHHCPs); and
  • Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Service Fiscal Intermediaries (FIs).

The survey can be accessed on the website of the state's HCRA Pool Administrator here. The same page contains links to survey instructions, directions on registering, and a webinar explaining the process.

If you have difficulties accessing the website, please contact webpools@hcrapools.org or call 315-671-3800. When submitting questions, please include the following information: Provider Name and corresponding License, Op-Cert, or MMIS number of the Home Care provider.
