Signed into Law: Singer Bill Establishing Reimbursement Rate for Traumatic Brain Injury Nursing Facilities

Legislation sponsored by Senator Robert Singer that establishes a minimum NJ FamilyCare reimbursement rate for traumatic brain injury special care nursing facilities was signed into law by Governor Murphy.

“I’m pleased that the Governor signed this bill into law. Reimbursement rates for brain injury services have remained static for far too long despite growing costs. This threatens the ability of providers to meet the complex needs of individuals with brain injuries and provide services within a safe and fulfilling community environment,” said Singer (R-30). “This new law will dramatically increase the reimbursement rate for special care nursing facilities, which will help offset the increased costs of staff and therapy services.”

Under Singer’s bill, S-2369, the rate increase will align the reimbursement rate for traumatic brain injury special care nursing facilities with the reimbursement rate for other special care nursing facilities.

A special care nursing facility is a State-licensed nursing facility which has been approved by the Department of Human Services to provide care to NJ FamilyCare beneficiaries who require specialized health care services beyond the scope of conventional nursing facility services.
