Setting A Rate Floor Gains Traction in Delaware
March 17, 2017
Representative Debra Heffernan, Vice Chair of the House Health and Human Development Committee, has offered to sponsor and draft a bill that would set a reimbursement rate floor for skilled nursing care for all payers under the state’s Medicaid equal to what Medicaid pays directly. This bill would go a long way in helping home health care providers have consistency in their plans. Rep. Heffernan represents an area north of Wilmington along the Delaware River, east of Fairfax. Two other representatives have offered to sponsor the bill as well, and an additional representative has offered to co-sponsor the bill.
