Nursing Facility Audit and Credit Balance Report Information


Please note: Effective 1/1/18 the Personal Needs Allowance for nursing facility residents has increased to $58.43.


Audits of Medicaid-contracted nursing facilities are conducted approximately once every four years. These audits examine both resident trust accounts and a facility's accounts receivable. Facilities must complete quarterly credit balance reports, which are used for the accounts receivable audits. If you have any questions about audits, please contact Melissa Ayala, Audit Team, at (360) 725-2416 or, or Tiffany Hills, Nursing Facility Rates Manager, at (360) 725-2472 or
