Change of Ownership

Pending CMS approval, nursing facilities that had a change of ownership during the period January 1, 2012 through June 30, 2014 are eligible to receive an adjustment to their Medicaid reimbursement rate effective July 1, 2015 based on the facility’s cost under the new owner. The first cost report ending June 30th that contains a least six months of cost under the new owner will be used to establish the new rate effective July 1, 2015. If there is not a cost report ending June 30th that contains at least six months of cost under the new owner available when establishing the July 1, 2015 rate, cost report information covering from the date of change in ownership through December 31, 2014 will be used.
