FISCAL IMPACT: [ ] State [ ] County [ ] Local [ X ] None
This bill requires the Department of Health and Human Services to review Medicaid reimbursement rates for home health services and determine whether they reflect the average cost to deliver services. Once the review is complete, the commissioner is required to report the findings for possible inclusion in the FY20/21 operating budget. The bill itself does not require rates to be set at any particular level, and so has no fiscal impact.
