Emergency Extension Request
To View Stage
On 6/15/2023 the board requested that this
emergency stage be extended until 2/14/2024.
Reason for Extension:
DMAS is requesting this emergency regulation be extended until 2/14/2024 for the following reason: This extension is required in order to continue enforcing the legislative mandate, which amended the Code of Virginia, §§ 32.1-330, 32.1-330.01, and 32.1-330.3 in accordance with 2020 HB/SB 902, to allow qualified nursing facility staff to complete the Long-Term Services and Supports (LTSS) screening for individuals who apply for or request LTSS, and who are receiving non-Medicaid skilled nursing services in an institutional setting following discharge from an acute care hospital. This package is essential for the protection of individual choice for the setting and provider of LTSS services for every individual who applies for or requests institutional or community based services.
This stage was approved by the Governor's office on 6/20/2023.
