DOH Releases Minimum Wage Survey

Carl Pucci and Stephen Hanse in Finance & Reimbursement

DOH has released a minimum wage survey to determine the financial impact of mandated increases to the minimum wage, beginning on 1/1/17. DOH will analyze 12/31/15 payroll data to develop a reimbursement methodology in order to provide funding for these increases.

The accompanying DAL contains the survey link.

It is vital that all facilities 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 respond to 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.
