Nursing Facility Manual for MassHealth Providers

The Nursing Facility Manual guides nursing facility providers to the regulations and the administrative and billing instructions they need.

Administrative regulations and billing regulations apply to all providers and are contained in 130 CMR 450.000. These regulations are reproduced as Subchapters 1, 2, and 3 in this and all other manuals.

Program regulations cover matters that apply specifically to the type of provider for which the manual was prepared. For nursing facility providers, those matters are covered in 130 CMR 456.000, reproduced as Subchapter 4 in the Nursing Facility Manual. 

The Executive Office of Health and Human Services (EOHHS) establishes rates for MassHealth services. These rate regulations for nursing facility services may be found in 101 CMR 206.00
