Nursing Facility (NF) services is a mandatory Medicaid benefit.
NFs are institutions that provide a full range of nursing services from intermediate care at the lower level up to and including skilled nursing services. NFs provide health related care and services on a 24-hour basis to individuals who, due to medical disorders, injuries, developmental disabilities, and/or related cognitive and behavioral impairments, exhibit the need for medical, nursing, rehabilitative and psychosocial management above the level of room and board. NF services include services for people who cannot live on their own because they need assistance with certain activities of daily living such as bathing, dressing, eating, toileting and transferring.
NFs also provide skilled nursing care and related services for individuals who require medical or nursing care and/or rehabilitation services.
