IMD Reimbursement Rates Freeze

March 8, 2018

Effective retroactively for dates of service on or after July 1, 2017, Institutions for Mental Diseases (IMDs) rates are frozen at 2016/2017 levels pursuant to Senate Bill (SB) 90 (Committee on Budget and Fiscal Review, Chapter 25, Statutes of 2017). Freestanding Skilled Nursing Facilities Level-B (FS/NF-Bs) that are designated as IMDs will not receive the annual 3.5 percent rate increase until full funding is restored from vehicle license fee growth funds from the General Growth Subaccount in the Vehicle License Fee Growth Account.

Manual replacement pages reflecting these changes will be released in a future Medi-Cal Update.
