Dept. of Health and Family Services
(Medical Assistance Reimbursement for Private Duty Nursing Services:
State of Wisconsin Medicaid Program)
The State of Wisconsin reimburses home health agencies and nurses in independent practice for private duty nursing (PDN) provided for Medical Assistance recipients under the authority of Title XIX of the Social Security Act and ss. 49.43 to 49.497, Wisconsin Statutes. This program, administered by the State's Department of Health and Family Services, is called Medical Assistance (MA) or Medicaid.
Under current law, PDN services provided by limited practice nurses (LPNs) and registered nurses (RNs) are paid the lesser of: (a) their usual and customary charges; or (b) maximum fees established by the Department for each procedure.
The Department is proposing an increase in the maximum fees for reimbursement of private duty nursing services provided to adults who are not assisted by a ventilator under the MA program. The increase for LPNs will be from $18.04 per hour to $21.02 per hour. The increase for RNs will be from $21.76 per hour to $31.53 per hour. Each of these rate increases would take effect on October 16, 2000. The Department's proposal involves no change in the definition of who is eligible to receive the private duty nursing benefit and the benefits remain the same.
It is estimated that this change will increase annual aggregate Medicaid expenditures by $280,880 all funds for the remaining 9 months of state fiscal year (SFY) 2001 ($164,654 federal and $116,226 state GPR).
The proposed change is to increase the maximum allowable fee for private duty nursing services provided to adults who are not assisted by a ventilator, for LPNs from $18.04 per hour to $21.02 per hour, and for RNs from $21.76 per hour to $31.53 per hour.
