(This amendment provides emergency funds for nursing homes that incur extraordinary and unavoidable expenses, such as contracting for nursing services when staffing vacancies cannot be filled. Currently, nursing homes might wait up to 18 months for Medicaid reimbursement of these expenses as part of cost settlement. Access to this fund would be on a first-come, first-serve basis, for facilities demonstrating that reimbursement delays would impact their fiscal stability.)
