NURSING FACILITIES: HB 2958 eliminates the Oklahoma Nursing Facility Funding Advisory Committee that developed a methodology for calculating Medicaid reimbursement rates based on facilities’ direct-care staffing costs. The measure directs the Oklahoma Health Care Authority (OHCA) to adopt a case-mix-adjusted payment methodology instead. This type of payment methodology will include three cost components: direct care, indirect care and administrative, and capital and pass-through-costs. The OHCA is to review the funding levels annually and any increases in the reimbursement methodology after July 1, 2021 is not to exceed the Consumer Price Index for Medical Care plus 1%.
