Acute Care Hospital Admission Incentive Payment

Acute Care Hospital Admission Incentive Payment

DSHS is currently offering a $6000 per patient incentive payment to any nursing home that admits any dual eligible patient from an acute care hospital.  This could be any new admit to your facility, as long as they are dual eligible and admit to your facility before 12/31/2020.  You can find the Dear Administrator letter with more details here.  You can also find a generic copy of the approval letter here.  

This is $6000 for every patient that is admitted.  These patients are not specifically COVID positive.  It is any dual eligible patient that is a new admit.

For questions, or to confirm if a patient is eligible for the incentive, you may contact Julie Cope, Systems Change Specialst, Aging and Long Term Supports Administration at 360-725-2529 or julie.cope@dshs.wa.gov.
