Not Enrolled in Medicaid

Beginning July 1, 2003, Georgia’s Nursing Home Provider Fee Act required that all of the state's nursing homes pay a fee based on the number of patient days of service provided. The fee is due from all licensed nursing homes except federal and state facilities, and all patient days other than those paid by the Medicare program are included in the fee calculation. The fee amount payable for each patient day may vary based on a facility’s number or percentage of medically indigent patients served.
