Division of Quality Assurance - Nursing Homes introduction 

Methods of Implementation and Medicaid Handbook:

  • Methods Of Implementation For Wisconsin Medicaid Nursing Home Payment Rates For The Period July 1, 2013 Through June 30, 2014 (ForwardHealth portal)
  • Medicaid Online Handbook (ForwardHealth portal)
  • Notes regarding Methods of Implementation and Medicaid Handbook:
    • The Methods of Implementation represent the most current program requirements and rules relative to nursing home and ICF-IID provider reimbursement.
    • Providers should continue to refer to the handbook for program requirements and rules.
    • Because the Methods of Implementation are updated every year, and the handbook is not, providers may identify sections where the two documents are not identical. In every instance, the Methods are considered authoritative.
    • As an example, the handbook contains certain obsolete references to bed hold billing requirements. Providers will see the correct current bed hold requirements in section 1.500 of the Methods.
