Why would a Nursing Facility provider receive a 951 rejection if the beneficiary had always been eligible for NF Medicaid since entering the facility?

A 951 Edit Code means the beneficiary was not eligible for Medicaid on the date of service. The beneficiary and/or responsible party for the beneficiary might not have completed the annual Medicaid eligibility review. Inform the nursing facility caller to contact the beneficiary’s eligibility caseworker.
