MA Bulletins for Nursing Facilities
The Department of Human Services (DHS) issues Medical Assistance (MA) Bulletins to communicate information to participating providers. MA Bulletins are used to provide clarifications and interpretations of existing policies and regulatory provisions and to provide notification of revisions being implemented to current practices. MA Bulletins are numbered in a manner to reflect which providers the bulletin applies to; for example bulletins with a number that starts with a “99” apply to all MA providers and bulletins with a number that starts with “03” or “36” apply to “extended care facilities”, which includes nursing facilities.
The Department of Human Services offers an MA Bulletin Search feature on their website. This link can be used to search for MA Bulletins issued by all DHS program offices, including OMAP and OLTL.
