SNF Acute Hospital Admit Incentive

SNF Acute Hospital Admit Incentive

DSHS has, effective February 9, 2021, discontinued the $100/day add on for dual eligible new admissions from an acute care hospital.  This is due to a lack of funding for the program.

Residents that are already in your facility prior to today will not be affected.  This affects new admissions only.  The department will honor admissions that occurred between January 1, 2021 and February 9, 2021.  For more information, please see this Dear Provider letter.

If you have any questions, you may contact Julie Cope at julie.cope@dshs.wa.gov or (360) 725-2529.
