EOHHS/UMASS today went live with the 2018 Direct Care Program webform. Nursing facilities must submit the Final Compliance report by July 31, 2018. The URL to login to the webform is: https://www.uenter.org/nf/. If facilities are unable to login to the webform for any reason, please email NFdirectcare@umassmed.edu and they will work to reset your account.
EOHHS/UMASS has sent via email to Nursing Facility Registered Users the following items for the purpose of completing the webform:
- 2018 Rate Year Nursing Facility Final Compliance Form Directions
This document provides instructions for nursing facilities to complete the Rate Year 2018 Direct Care Program Final Compliance Form.
- 2018 Rate Year Nursing Facility Direct Care Program Compliance Filing FAQ
This document contains questions and answers about Direct Care Program eligibility, payments, reporting, compliance, and other topics.
- Manual Spreadsheet to Help You Prepare for the Webform
This EXCEL spreadsheet is designed to mimic the webform. It is for informational purposes only but it should give Registered Users an opportunity, if you choose, to do a preliminary analysis before entering the data on the electronic webform.
The methodology remains the same with the January 2016 through June 2016 period being the base period and the rate period now being July 2017 through June 2018. Please note that while the methodology remains the same, EOHHS/UMASS will be collecting reporting information on overtime hours and dollars for this filing. EOHHS/UMASS recommends web browsers Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox; the webform is not compatible with Internet Explorer or Microsoft Edge.
Please contact Gary Abrahams at Mass Senior Care Association if you have questions.
