Dear Administrator:

RE: 2022 Medicaid Fee-for-Service Rates Posted for:
Licensed Home Care Service Agency (LHCSA - Personal Care-PC),
Certified Home Health Agency (CHHA) and
Consumer Directed Personal Care Assistance Program/ Fiscal Intermediary (CDPAP-FI)

Please be advised that 2022 Medicaid Fee-for-Service rate sheets for LHCSA, CHHA and CDPAP-FI providers who certified or appealed during the review period are now available on the Health Commerce System (HCS) and on the DOH website. The rates will take effect in eMedNY in cycle 2429, with a check release date of March 27, 2024.

The 2022 FFS rates were developed based on the data submitted in the 2020 cost reports and are all-inclusive. As noted in the May 9, 2023 DAL, and May 2, 2023 webinar, the minimum wage increases, detailed on your rate sheet, are captured within the rates as an add-on. These rates continue the previously enacted one percent (1%) enhancement effective April 1, 2022 and the $2.35 Statewide Home Care Minimum Wage adjustment effective October 1, 2022, and also include changes related to:

  • Cost-based growth: subject to applicable ceilings, based on 2020 audited cost reports.
  • Minimum Wage Adjustment for 2022 increases: as established by the Minimum Wage Act (Article 19 of the New York State Labor Law). Note: more information on NYS Minimum Wage is available on the Department of Labor website.

If you have any questions, please contact the Bureau via email: for LHCSAs and FIs - and for CHHA - .
