Special Notice: Capital Improvement Incentive

The Division of Medicaid and Health Financing (DMHF) will amend Attachment 4.19-D of the Medicaid State Plan to improve the quality of life for patients in Intermediate Care Facilities for Individuals with an Intellectual Disability (ICF/ID).

This change, therefore, allows payment to providers through a capital incentive to improve facilities and equipment that may support an individual's rights to privacy, dignity, respect, and autonomy.

This State Plan Amendment (SPA 18-0004-UT) does not affect total annual expenditures for the Medicaid program.

The SPA is pending approval from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and the proposed effective date is July 1, 2018.

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