Nursing Facility Appropriated Funds for Rate Increase

The Department of Social Services has been appropriated funding for nursing facility rate increases for the period beginning July 1, 2015. In accordance with Public Act Number 15-5, June Special Session, $26 million is to be applied to wage increases for eligible direct and indirect care employee salaries. An additional $9.6 million has also been authorized for increases to certain employee benefit categories.

Once final wage and benefit increases have been determined, nursing facility providers must submit a completed Final Wage and Benefit Enhancement form (below).
