One-time retention payment for non-HCBS waiver providers
The Agency for Health Care Administration announced a disbursement of additional funding from the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) Home- and Community-Based Services (HCBS) Enhanced Funding Opportunity to the Medicaid Managed Care Plans. This will initiate a one-time retention payment for non-HCBS waiver providers.
The one-time payments were calculated based on a 19% rate increase applied to non-waiver HCBS claims for the following allowable services provided from July 1, 2021, to June 30, 2022:
Assistive care services (PT 14)
Community behavioral health (PT 05)
