OCHR Board Approves Rate Increase

The Overton County Health and Rehab Board of Directors met on Thursday last week to discuss some adjustments to the TennCare reimbursement rates and room rates at the nursing home, later approving an increase on the private posted room rates.

The approved increases in posted room rates are $228 per day for intermediate long-term care and $250 per day for skilled care, effective Sept. 1, 2018. These numbers are an increase from the current rates at $197 per day for intermediate care and $220 per day for skilled care.
