Institutions for Mental Diseases

Institutions for Mental Diseases (IMDs) present unique issues as to Medicaid reimbursement by virtue of the ages of the patients served by these SNFs and other facilities and the “IMD exclusion.”  Hooper, Lundy & Bookman attorneys have significant experience handling reimbursement issues in this area, including the application of the “IMD exclusion,” county funding of services as well as state funding for “ancillary” services.  Moreover, as with any facility caring for patients with mental health issues, the issues associated with self-reporting are significant and challenging.  Our attorneys have a high degree of expertise in this area.
