Analysis of NTPF Nursing Home FDR Changes in December 2021
26 January 2022
Every month, the HSE releases an update on the prevailing FDR for private & voluntary nursing homes operating under the Fair Deal Scheme across the country. This is the maximum price per week agreed between the nursing home and the HSE under the nursing home support scheme, providing an insight into not only the highest and lowest rates being achieved but also into the changes occurring on a monthly basis for each individual private and voluntary nursing home.
Nursing homes under the Fair Deal Scheme allows for residents to pay only a portion of their cost of care and the remaining is paid by the HSE to the nursing home. For the past number of years, our Healthcare Team in Corporate Finance has analysed these changes, noting trends and patterns on a county-by-county basis and an all-country basis. We have now prepared this report to highlight the changes in the rates in the last quarter of 2021. We have also taken this opportunity to highlight changes in the rates between December 2020 and December 2021, assisting operators and healthcare providers across the country.
Our previous report, demonstrating the FDR changes between June 2021 and September 2021, is available here.
