1. Evidently, the bed hold was not included in the supplemental budget on the Governor's desk. There remain some differences in the House and Senate ...CLICK TITLE FOR MORE...versions and they have to be resolved. There is some thinking that these differences will be resolved easily. More later.
2. The Office of Medicaid(MASSHEALTH) has withdrawn its regulations which would have ended the Bed Hold program as of November 1.
Therefore whatever happens with the budget item in the supplemental budget the current crisis seems to have abated.
