FROM: PAUL SWATSENBARG, Deputy Administrator
Division of Medicaid
Effective October 1, 2001, Medicaid will increase its reimbursement for Personal Assistance
Services (personal care and attendant services) for dates of service on or after October 1, 2001. An error was made in the calculation of this year’s rate. The new rates are listed below:
(Children under Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnosis,
and Treatment Program (EPSDT) only)
0646P Attendant Care $3.02/15
To allow for proper payments, do NOT include any dates of service prior to October 1, 2001, on the same claim form while billing for services provided from October 1, 2001, forward. If you have questions, please contact your Regional Medicaid Unit.
