Singer’s bill, S-2561, would establish a minimum Medicaid reimbursement rate for providers of adult medical daycare services.

“Adult day health services are crucial to the physical and emotional well-being of New Jersey seniors,” said Singer (R-30). “An increase in funding for these providers will help them better assist, protect, and support the elderly throughout our state. With increased support, these facilities would be able to offer more services and specialized care, including nursing, nutrition, medication management, and both physical and behavioral therapy.”

Under Singer’s bill, whether the services are provided in the Medicaid fee-for-service (FFS) delivery system or through a managed care delivery system, the per diem reimbursement rate is required to be no less than the established State Medicaid FFS rate.

“Adult daycare provides older adults the opportunity to participate in outpatient programs they need and allows them to continue living and sleeping in familiar surroundings,” said Singer. “Bolstering these services is a win for both patients and their families.”
