Value Based Purchasing State Plan Amendment Notice
The Office of Medicaid Policy and Planning (OMPP) published notice on May 29, 2013 to amend the Indiana Medicaid State Plan to implement the Value Based Purchasing (VBP) add-on to the nursing facility Medicaid rate. The notice can be accessed in the Members Only section of the IHCA website. The VBP add-on will replace the current Report Card Score add-on as of July 1, 2013. Due to how the State Plan Amendment approval process works with CMS, IHCA expects retroactive adjustment of claims once the amendment is approved.
