Sec. WW-1. Nursing home eligibility medical assessment rules. The Department of Health and Human Services shall amend its rules and policies to eliminate the requirement for 90-day and for 5-year medical assessments for MaineCare nursing home eligibility. After an initial medical assessment, the department shall require that nursing home providers conduct ongoing evaluations using the State’s minimum data set for determining medical eligibility. The department shall establish a process to assess penalties for nursing home provider misqualifications in medical eligibility determinations and to use existing department case reviewers to monitor nursing home resident medical eligibility determinations through random sampling methods.
