Current Bill Summary

SB 1056 - This act provides that any funds generated by Mo HealthNet federal reimbursement allowances or provider taxes under the Hospital Reimbursement Allowance, Nursing Facility Reimbursement Allowance, Medicaid Managed Care Organization Reimbursement Allowance and Pharmacy provider tax shall not be construed to specifically obligate the state to reimburse such funds to the providers. Any amounts to be paid to those obligated to pay the taxes shall be determined through the appropriation process by the General Assembly based on services rendered in the Mo HealthNet program.

This act also repeals the provision that required the federal reimbursement allowance for hospitals to terminate 180 days after the end of any state fiscal year when the federal reimbursement allowance assessment is more than 85% of the total aggregate MO HealthNet direct payments, uninsured add-on payments, and enhanced graduate medical education payments.
