Nursing Facility Provider Fee


The Nursing Facility Provider Fee was implemented in accordance with the provisions of Colorado House Bill 08-1114, which was signed into law by the Governor of Colorado in 2008.  The law calls for the enactment of a new Medicaid reimbursement system for Medicaid recipients who reside in nursing homes classified as Class 1 nursing facilities by statute.  Class 1 nursing facilities provide for general skilled nursing care to residents who require 24 hour care.  The new Medicaid reimbursement system is funded via a provider fee assessed to all nursing facility providers which meet state licensing requirements, with certain exceptions as defined in the law.  The law assesses the fee retroactively to July 1, 2008.


General questions and questions about the provider fee invoicing process, due dates and late penalties should be addressed to the Department's Nursing Facility Provider Fee Accountant at 303-866-3820.


Please refer to the following documents for more information about the Provider Fee and the Invoicing process.  Also check back here for updates as they become available.
