ATTN: Adult Family Care Homes/Alternative Residential Facilities

August 15, 2012

The rate for any members assigned to the resource group of one (1) in the MaineCare Benefits Manual (MCBM), Chapter III, Section 2 Adult Family Care Home, was reduced to $64.51in an emergency rule effective 4/01/2012.

The emergency rule that would have enforced this rate reduction has lapsed and the Department never adopted the rule as final. We have restored the previous rate of $71.68. If your claims were previously paid at the $64.51 rate, you can now adjust you claims.

For members assigned to any other resource group, claims have been paid appropriately and no action is required.

For more information regarding this rule, please refer to Chapter III, Section 2 of the MCBM.
