Special Notice: Nursing Facility Services

The Division of Medicaid and Health Financing (DMHF) will submit a change to the Medicaid State Plan through SPA 14-011-UT, Nursing Facility Services.

DMHF does not anticipate any impact on total annual expenditures as a result of this clarification.

The proposed effective date of this change is April 1, 2014, and is pending Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services approval.

A copy of the change may be obtained from Craig Devashrayee (801-538-6641), or by writing the Technical Writing Unit, Utah Department of Health, PO Box 143102, Salt Lake City, UT 84114-3102.
