New Jersey Revised Statutes § 30:4d-17.6 - Withdrawal As Medicaid Provider

30:4D-17.6. Withdrawal as Medicaid provider
a. If a skilled nursing or intermediate care facility notifies the commissioner within 180 days following the date of enactment of this amendatory and supplementary act that the facility shall no longer be a Medicaid provider and that (1) the facility has one or more Medicaid qualified applicants residing therein or (2) the facility has one or more patients residing therein who are paying privately for their care at the facility under the terms of an agreement entered into before August 24, 1985 and who will become Medicaid qualified applicants upon the expiration of the agreement, the commissioner may, at the request of the facility, permit the facility to continue to provide skilled nursing or intermediate care services to those Medicaid current and prospective qualified applicants residing therein without being required to admit any new Medicaid qualified applicants.

The commissioner may grant a facility's request to do so if the request is in the best interests of the Medicaid qualified applicants residing therein. For the period of time that any Medicaid qualified applicants continue to reside in the facility, that facility shall comply with all applicable provisions of P.L. 1968, c. 413 (C. 30:4D-1 et seq.).

b. If a skilled nursing or intermediate care facility which withdraws as a Medicaid provider pursuant to this section subsequently reapplies to the department to become a Medicaid provider, the commissioner may require as a condition of becoming a Medicaid provider that the facility enter into a three year Medicaid provider contract with the department.

L. 1985, c. 303, s. 9. Amended by L. 1986, c. 8, s. 3, eff. March 28, 1986.
