Out of 80 licensed nursing facilities, there are 80 facilities with 6,020 beds available participating in the Medicaid program and approximately 800 beds in 36 swing bed facilities throughout the state. Approximately fifty-one percent of licensed nursing facility beds are funded through the Medicaid program. The average nursing facility rate is $238.94 per day as of January 1, 2014.

Since 1990, North Dakota has had a case mix payment system and rate equalization for Medicaid and self-pay residents in nursing facilities. Rates for each of the 48 case-mix classifications for all residents in nursing facilities are established annually, effective January 1, based on cost reports submitted by the nursing facilities.
