Kentucky Medicaid Bed Reservation
Effective April 1, 2020 Department for Medicaid Services increased the bed reservation days to 30 per calendar year through the end of the Public Health Emergency. Therefore, Kentucky Medicaid patients have 30 bed reservation days as of 1/1/2022.
Recipients that spend a total of $750,000 or more in federal funds, including Provider Relief Fund (PRF) payments and other federal financial assistance, during their fiscal year are subject to Single Audit requirements, as set forth in the regulations at 45 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) § 75 Subpart F.
