DHS COVID-19 PROVIDER GUIDANCE // OLTL
Delay of Healthcare-Associated Infection (HAI) Payments
Issued: June 4, 2020
This is to notify nursing facilities that due to COVID-19, the Office of Long-Term Living
(OLTL) cannot access information necessary to calculate the HAI Payments for MA-11
Cost Reports with acceptance letters normally mailed in March.
On March 2, 2020, the Department of Health (DOH) issued letters to nursing facilities to
inform them of the Patient Safety Trust Fund surcharge amounts due to DOH. Due to
working remotely, DOH is unable to produce a report of payments received from nursing
facilities. OLTL requires this report in order to calculate the HAI Payments. Payments
will be issued as soon as the report becomes available. OLTL will provide further
information when the issue is resolved.
If you have questions regarding this information, please contact the OLTL, Bureau of
Finance, Diane E. Bamford at email@example.com.
