Certified Nursing Assistant Reimbursement Law

According to the Medical Assistance Program Bulletin 5370-90-03 and The Nursing Home Reform Act of 1987, and in regard to Section 4801 (a)(5)(D) of the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1990: A Certified Nurse Aide who pays for their own education in a state approved CNA program, who goes to work in a Long Term Care Facility or Nursing Home that accepts Medicaid patients, must be reimbursed on a pro-rata basis, for their education up to $500.00, within one year of graduation from a state approved program.

This does not include Assisted Living, Hospitals, Agencies and Home Health Care companies. Facilities that are on "Lock-out" must still reimburse students for their education. Copies of the law and its subclasses are available by calling the State of Michigan.
