Current Bill Summary

CCS/HCS/SS/SCS/SB 775 - This act extends the sunsets from September 30, 2018, to September 30, 2019, for the Ground Ambulance, Nursing Facility, Medicaid Managed Care Organization, Hospital, Pharmacy, and Intermediate Care Facility for the Intellectually Disabled Reimbursement Allowance Taxes.

Additionally, this act repeals existing provisions of law regarding hospital reimbursement allowance calculations and alternative reimbursements for outpatient services. Instead, each state fiscal year, the amount of federal reimbursement allowance levied under the Hospital Reimbursement Allowance Tax shall not exceed 45% of the total payments to hospitals from the Federal Reimbursement Allowance Fund and associated federal match, including payments made to hospitals from state-contracted managed care organizations that are attributable to the reimbursement fund and associated federal match. By October 1 of each subsequent state fiscal year, the Department of Social Services shall report this calculation and the underlying data to the House budget committee and the Senate appropriations committee as specified in the act. Additionally, the Department shall disclose the amount of hospital payments made by the Department and the amount of hospital payments made by each of the managed care plans as specified in the act.

This act is similar to SB 638 (2018), SB 932 (2018), HB 1410 (2018), and HB 1747 (2018).
