AHCCCS Fee-For-Service (FFS) rates for Home and Community Based Services and Skilled Nursing Facilities
Applicable to: Mercy Care Long Term Care
Effective for dates of service on or after January 1, 2019, changes were made to the Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS) Fee-For-Service (FFS) rates for Home and Community Based Services and Skilled Nursing Facilities. This change addresses the increased labor costs resulting from the Arizona minimum wage increase and employee benefit provisions mandated by Proposition 206.
Detailed information regarding rates is available on the AHCCCS website under the following documents:
Since this pass-through rate increase is mandated by AHCCCS, the new rates are automatically passed-through to you by Mercy Care.
