COVID-19 Add-Ons Extended Through December 

COVID-19 Add-Ons Extended Through December 

This week we received word from DSHS that they have been authorized to continue the COVID- 19 add -ons through December. While the exact add on has not been finalized, it is likely the add-ons from October – December will be as follows:

SNF – $7.50 per Medicaid resident per day add-on all for the last three months of 2020

ALF – $4.79 per Medicaid resident per day add-on for the last three months of 2020

DSHS plans to have the add-ons ready to go by October 1, so there will be no pause in the funding.

While we are disappointed these rates have not been fully restored to the original funding amount, we are pleased that some relief will be extended through the end of the year. LeadingAge WA will continue to advocate for the full COVID add-on to be restored.
