An act relative to small house nursing homes

Small house nursing homes (most notably the Green House modelTM) are an innovative model of care designed to create a more homelike environment for 10-14 individuals needing a nursing home level of care.  
 
This legislation would require the Department of Public Health to develop regulations specific to small houses and would incentivize development of them by establishing an add-on to the Medicaid reimbursement rate in recognition of the additional capital costs involved in design and construction.
