"PPP.  Effective June 30, 2008, the Department of Medical Assistance Services, in determining the direct patient care medians available for Medicaid nursing facility reimbursements shall expand the Richmond-Petersburg Group to include all nursing facilities in the Charlottesville Metropolitan Statistical Area."

(This amendment requires the Department of Medical Assistance Services to include all nursing facilities within the Charlottesville Metropolitan Statistical Area in the Richmond-Petersburg Group for purposes of nursing facility reimbursements. Because Charlottesville nursing homes are included within the category of rest of state, they tend to have operating costs above the median, resulting in lower reimbursements.)
