2022 State Budget Includes 10% Medicaid Rate Increase for HCBS
The HCAOA Georgia Chapter has strongly advocated for a Medicaid raise increase for home and community-based providers serving Elderly and Disabled Medicaid Waiver Program recipients across the state. We are happy to announce that a 10% reimbursement rate increase for was included in the SFY 2022 budget, which was passed by the House and Senate and sent to the governor.
All HCAOA Georgia Chapter members are encouraged to reach out to thank your local House and Senate legislators for their support of the elderly and disabled Georgians that we serve. And a special thanks goes to the HCAOA Georgia Chapter lobbyist, Rusty Paul. As a former Senator, Rusty’s knowledge of the Capitol and legislative process has been invaluable in making this rate increase possible.
