Fiscal Detail and Notes
The bill includes General Fund appropriations to the Department of Health and Human Services of 753,970 in fiscal year 2021-22 and $753,970 in fiscal year 2022-23 to provide reimbursement under the MaineCare program to nursing facilities for direct costs on bed holds during hospitalizations and therapeutic leaves of absence. Other Special Revenue Funds allocations are also included for the Health Care Provider Tax.

There are no Federal Expenditures Fund allocations included in this bill for the FMAP match, as it is expected that the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services will not approve paying for services that are not provided.
