This bill, designated the "Uncompensated Pending Medicaid Beneficiary Payment Relief Act," would provide payments to certain nursing facilities for residents who have applied for Medicaid but whose eligibility has not been determined more than 90 days after the initial application. The bill requires the Commissioner of Human Services to make advance payments to a nursing facility, at the facility's request, whenever the facility is providing uncompensated services to one or more residents whose eligibility for Medicaid has not been determined more than 90 days after an application has been filed. Any such advance payment would not exceed fifty percent of the estimated amount due for the uncompensated services. No later than 30 days after any such application is granted and payment has been made to the facility, or after any such application has been denied, the commissioner would be required to: provide reimbursement for any balance due to the facility; or recover any advance payments made on behalf of an applicant deemed ineligible for Medicaid by reducing any payments due to the facility. This bill will take effect on the first day of the fiscal year next following the date of enactment.
