Date: October 19, 2023

Effective April 1, 2023, Medicaid rates for CFTSS have been adjusted to include a 4% Cost of Living Adjustment (COLA), per the 2023-2024 New York State Enacted budget. This adjustment has been approved by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and the New York State Division of Budget (DOB).

MMCPs must configure their systems to pay the updated rates for these services no later than 90 days from the date of this announcement. MMCPs must also issue retro- active payment adjustments to providers for any claims previously paid for CFTSS with dates of service on or after April 1, 2023. MMCPs are not permitted to halt or delay payments to providers while this reconfiguration is in process.
