Laura Boyd (communication #4 below) indicates that there still may be some relief for providers relying on Medicaid. There is work currently being done to try and get more clarification on delays for those providers so stay tuned. In the meantime I recommend you become familiar with the ruling and determine how best your organization should react (see #s 3 and 6 below for some guidance).
Also, Together Georgia needs all of you that will be fiscally impacted to send us your impact analysis so that we can begin to educate the Office of Planning and Budget and the Legislative Appropriation's members. Please send us the projections for how this ruling might increase your expenses for calendar year 2017. Once we get a sizable response we will attempt to determine what the reasonable cost will be for all Georgia providers. Please try and get us these numbers by June 1. [respond via Survey Monkey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/KGBBXPN] Let us know if you have further questions or need additional information. We will keep you informed of any changes or new interpretations of this ruling.
