Abstract

The objective of the current study was to investigate the perspectives of nursing home (NH) providers regarding the requirements to achieve reimbursement for nursing restorative care (NRC) services and propose recommendations to state agencies to assist NH providers to conduct NRC programs that are person-centered and able to achieve full reimbursement. Methods included a survey of NH providers in one state and a stakeholder focus group to discuss survey fi ndings and develop recommendations. Key fi ndings are that NH providers perceive value to residents from the provision of NRC; providers do not associate these benefi ts with the stringent reimbursement requirements; and NHs often provide NRC that is individualized, based on resident goals and activity tolerance, as well as realistic given competing demands on staff, even when doing so means giving up reimbursement for NRC services. Recommendations include basing reimbursement for NRC on outcomes rather than the process; reconsideration of the frequency and intensity requirements for NRC components; and increased availability of NRC training/education and resources for providers and case-mix reviewers.
