Medicaid Nursing Home Supplemental Payments

CMS approved a nursing home supplemental payment program in certain States that pays the difference between Medicare and Medicaid rates for nursing home services. In some of these programs, local governments fund the States' share of the supplemental payments through intergovernmental transfers. Prior OIG and Government Accountability Office audits have found that Federal supplemental payments often benefit the State and local governments more than the nursing homes. We will review the nursing home supplemental payment program's flow of funding and determine how the funds are being used.
