Emergency Rule Making: Implementation of 1.1% Medicaid Fee Reductions for Operating Rates of Continuing Day Treatment Programs

The New York State Office of Mental Health has introduced an emergency rule to implement the 1.1% Medicaid fee reduction for operating rates of continuing day treatment programs. The reduction in rates for these programs is part of a continuation of the 1.1% reduction in State Medicaid expenditures for mental health programs, and is consistent with the 2011-2012 enacted State budget.  The rule has been deemed to warrant an emergency filing by the Office of Mental Health based on the enactment date of the State budget.  The rate reductions are effective as of August 4, 2011.
