    Hi Sunrock, Thanks for the info. I am currently a medicaid provider in Ohio, but will be moving to New York city in September, and am in the process of getting my provider # now. Is the $43-44/hr reimbursement for peds cases before or after the 30% enhancement rate? Is it difficult to get reimbursed as an R.N. In the state of New York? I noticed on pg.5 of the N.Y. Private Duty Manual it stated that prior approval should be at the LPN level unless approved by the MD. Finally, have you ever heard of any private duty nurses taking intermittant cases (straight caths, med administration, chronic wound care,etc)? I know these cases must exist, but is the Medicaid reimbursement lucrative? On Ohio, nurses get paid $54.95, for the first hour of any case. So, if you spend 15 minutes straight cathing your patient, you still get the $54.95. I'm sure the reimbursement in Brooklyn (where I'll be moving) must be higher than it is in Cleveland. I can't seem to get a bottom line on this though. Thanks!
    ********currently it seems that the sup. retired and the current one is now giving all of the cases to the agencies, and that is how i am working presently, the rate is very low 28 for adults, and 4 for children, regarding the increase, i am not sure, just ran across your posting, have you moved to brooklyn yet, let me know.

    Sunrock, I am still in Cleveland. Will be moving to Brooklyn in September. I recieved my Medicaid provider # last week but have not started advertising yet. Still confused regarding the payrate. Is that $40 for kids working through an agency? Was the $43-44/hr as independant after the 30% incentive for medically fragile kids? What about the pay for intermittant visits as independant provider? What agency do you work for?

    Visits are approx with an agency 39/hr for a total of 30 pts/week anything over 30 is 54/hr, someone just told me. i cannot give you the name of the agency due to this forum send me a private email.
