Monday Deadline for DOH Minimum Wage Reimbursement Survey

in Finance & Reimbursement

As previously communicated by NYSHFA on several occasions, the Department of Health ("DOH") has released a minimum wage survey to determine the financial impact of mandated increases to the minimum wage, beginning on 1/1/17.

Please respond to the wage survey immediately in order to assist DOH in developing a reimbursement methodology to cover the anticipated costs related to future minimum wage increases for 2017, as well as in future years. 

Failure to complete the survey and respond to the DOH by 5:00 pm Monday, August 29, 2016 will result in an automatic default to an average wage calculation based on 2014 RHCF data which may result in no additional reimbursement for your facility.

The accompanying DAL contains the survey link.
