PERSONAL PRIVILEGE

 

Senator Schoesler: “Mr. President, I’ve tried to limit my floor resolutions this year but I feel compelled to talk about another passing in the past year and that was former Senator Gene Prince. Gene Prince started as a staff member in the other body about the time I was born and he was there through that career in the capacities of staff up through Clerk, member and caucus chair. He served in this body, finishing his career as a Transportation Chair, moving on to Liquor Board. Gene’s funeral was an interesting event, to have a Republican Senator from Eastern Washington eulogized by a former Democratic Governor. That doesn’t happen very often. I think of those memories and those little expressions like, ‘What’d you know,’ that stuck with me so long. The love for a bowl of ice cream that was legendary with his family and friends. His love of Higher Education, Transportation, his farm and his wife Patsy. It was a sad event for Higher Education, Agriculture and the sad event for all the passing of Eugene Prince last fall. Thank you.”

 

PERSONAL PRIVILEGE

 

Senator Jacobsen: “I’d also have to, I went to Gene’s funeral and when I got elected in ’83 and Gary Locke was in the class and I was Vice Chair of House Higher Ed and Bill Burns was the Chair and Gene was the Ranking Minority that year. He ended up really mentoring me well and he worked in a bi-partisan fashion and I think I still have some of that style that maybe we don’t see here everyday now. Gene was inclined to let the committee vote on all the amendments and whatever passed he felt that’s how you represent the bill on the floor because it reflected the thinking of the committee. He was always very conscientious public policy but the other thing Gene placed highest of all was the integrity of this institution. He started out as a bill clerk here, worked with Ralph Munro and Sid was, I don’t know where Sid Snyder was, but they were like friends and they grew up in this place. He just felt that it was so important. He was way into conference committees, I will tell you that. He liked to go back to five signatures. We’d gone to four but he felt the more you had on the conference committee the more reflected the bi-partisan approach to things. He was a heck of a guy. I’m going to miss him.”

      Sec. 201. 2007 c 522 s 201 (uncodified) is amended to read as follows:

 

FOR THE DEPARTMENT OF SOCIAL AND HEALTH SERVICES. (1) Appropriations made in this act to the department of social and health services shall initially be allotted as required by this act. Subsequent allotment modifications shall not include transfers of moneys between sections of this act except as expressly provided in this act, nor shall allotment modifications permit moneys that are provided solely for a specified purpose to be used for other than that purpose.

      (2) The department of social and health services shall not initiate any services that require expenditure of state general fund moneys unless expressly authorized in this act or other law. The department may seek, receive, and spend, under RCW 43.79.260 through 43.79.282, federal moneys not anticipated in this act as long as the federal funding does not require expenditure of state moneys for the program in excess of amounts anticipated in this act. If the department receives unanticipated unrestricted federal moneys, those moneys shall be spent for services authorized in this act or in any other legislation providing appropriation authority, and an equal amount of appropriated state general fund moneys shall lapse. Upon the lapsing of any moneys under this subsection, the office of financial management shall notify the legislative fiscal committees. As used in this subsection, "unrestricted federal moneys" includes block grants and other funds that federal law does not require to be spent on specifically defined projects or matched on a formula basis by state funds.

      (3) The appropriations to the department of social and health services in this act shall be expended for the programs and in the amounts specified in this act.

      (4) The department is authorized to develop an integrated health care program designed to slow the progression of illness and disability and better manage medicaid expenditures for the aged and disabled population. Under this Washington medicaid integration partnership (WMIP), the department may combine and transfer such medicaid funds appropriated under sections 204, 206, 208, and 209 of this act as may be necessary to finance a unified health care plan for the WMIP program enrollment. The WMIP pilot projects shall not exceed a daily enrollment of ((13,000)) 6,000 persons, nor expand beyond one county, during the 2007-2009 biennium. The amount of funding assigned to the pilot projects from each program may not exceed the average per capita cost assumed in this act for individuals covered by that program, actuarially adjusted for the health condition of persons enrolled in the pilot project, times the number of clients enrolled in the pilot project. In implementing the WMIP pilot projects, the department may: (a) Withhold from calculations of "available resources" as set forth in RCW 71.24.025 a sum equal to the capitated rate for individuals enrolled in the pilots; and (b) employ capitation financing and risk-sharing arrangements in collaboration with health care service contractors licensed by the office of the insurance commissioner and qualified to participate in both the medicaid and medicare programs. The department shall conduct an evaluation of the WMIP, measuring changes in participant health outcomes, changes in patterns of service utilization, participant satisfaction, participant access to services, and the state fiscal impact.

      (5)(a) The appropriations to the department of social and health services in this act shall be expended for the programs and in the amounts specified in this act. However, after May 1, 2008, unless specifically prohibited by this act, the department may transfer general fund--state appropriations for fiscal year 2008 among programs after approval by the director of financial management. However, the department shall not transfer state moneys that are provided solely for a specified purpose except as expressly provided in (b) of this subsection.

      (b) To the extent that transfers under (a) of this subsection are insufficient to fund actual expenditures in excess of fiscal year 2008 caseload forecasts and utilization assumptions in the medical assistance, long-term care, foster care, adoption support, and child support programs, the department may transfer state moneys that are provided solely for a specified purpose. The department shall not transfer funds, and the director of financial management shall not approve the transfer, unless the transfer is consistent with the objective of conserving, to the maximum extent possible, the expenditure of state funds. The director of financial management shall notify the appropriate fiscal committees of the senate and house of representatives in writing seven days prior to approving any allotment modifications or transfers under this subsection. The written notification shall include a narrative explanation and justification of the changes, along with expenditures and allotments by budget unit and appropriation, both before and after any allotment modifications or transfers.

$8,447,469,000

      The appropriations in this section are subject to the following conditions and limitations:

      (1) Based on quarterly expenditure reports and caseload forecasts, if the department estimates that expenditures for the medical assistance program will exceed the appropriations, the department shall take steps including but not limited to reduction of rates or elimination of optional services to reduce expenditures so that total program costs do not exceed the annual appropriation authority.

      (2) In determining financial eligibility for medicaid-funded services, the department is authorized to disregard recoveries by Holocaust survivors of insurance proceeds or other assets, as defined in RCW 48.104.030.

      (3) Sufficient amounts are appropriated in this section for the department to continue podiatry services for medicaid-eligible adults.

      (4) Sufficient amounts are appropriated in this section for the department to provide an adult dental benefit that is at least equivalent to the benefit provided in the 2003-05 biennium.

       (5) In accordance with RCW 74.46.625, $6,000,000 of the general fund--federal appropriation is provided solely for supplemental payments to nursing homes operated by public hospital districts. The public hospital district shall be responsible for providing the required nonfederal match for the supplemental payment, and the payments shall not exceed the maximum allowable under federal rules. It is the legislature's intent that the payments shall be supplemental to and shall not in any way offset or reduce the payments calculated and provided in accordance with part E of chapter 74.46 RCW. It is the legislature's further intent that costs otherwise allowable for rate-setting and settlement against payments under chapter 74.46 RCW shall not be disallowed solely because such costs have been paid by revenues retained by the nursing home from these supplemental payments. The supplemental payments are subject to retrospective interim and final cost settlements based on the nursing homes' as-filed and final medicare cost reports. The timing of the interim and final cost settlements shall be at the department's discretion. During either the interim cost settlement or the final cost settlement, the department shall recoup from the public hospital districts the supplemental payments that exceed the medicaid cost limit and/or the medicare upper payment limit. The department shall apply federal rules for identifying the eligible incurred medicaid costs and the medicare upper payment limit.

      (6) $1,111,000 of the health services account appropriation for fiscal year 2008, $1,110,000 of the health services account appropriation for fiscal year 2009, $5,402,000 of the general fund--federal appropriation, $1,590,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2008, and $1,591,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2009 are provided solely for grants to rural hospitals. The department shall distribute the funds under a formula that provides a relatively larger share of the available funding to hospitals that (a) serve a disproportionate share of low-income and medically indigent patients and (b) have relatively smaller net financial margins, to the extent allowed by the federal medicaid program.

      (7) $10,546,000 of the health services account appropriation for fiscal year 2008, $10,546,000 of the health services account--state appropriation for fiscal year 2009, and $19,725,000 of the general fund--federal appropriation are provided solely for grants to nonrural hospitals. The department shall distribute the funds under a formula that provides a relatively larger share of the available funding to hospitals that (a) serve a disproportionate share of low-income and medically indigent patients and (b) have relatively smaller net financial margins, to the extent allowed by the federal medicaid program.

      (8) The department shall continue the inpatient hospital certified public expenditures program for the 2007-2009 biennium. The program shall apply to all public hospitals, including those owned or operated by the state, except those classified as critical access hospitals or state psychiatric institutions. The department shall submit ((a)) reports to the governor and legislature by November 1, 2007, and by November 1, 2008, that evaluate((s)) whether savings continue to exceed costs for this program. If the certified public expenditures (CPE) program in its current form is no longer cost-effective to maintain, the department shall submit a report to the governor and legislature detailing cost-effective alternative uses of local, state, and federal resources as a replacement for this program. During fiscal year 2008 and fiscal year 2009, hospitals in the program shall be paid and shall retain (a) one hundred percent of the federal portion of the allowable hospital cost for each medicaid inpatient fee-for-service claim payable by medical assistance; and (b) one hundred percent of the federal portion of the maximum disproportionate share hospital payment allowable under federal regulations. Inpatient medicaid payments shall be established using an allowable methodology that approximates the cost of claims submitted by the hospitals. Payments made to each hospital in the program in each fiscal year of the biennium shall be compared to a baseline amount ((that is the total of (a) the total payment for claims for services rendered during the fiscal year calculated according to the methodology employed by the legislature in the omnibus appropriations act for implementation in fiscal year 2008)). The baseline amount will be determined by the total of (a) the inpatient claim payment amounts that would have been paid during the fiscal year had the hospital not been in the CPE program, and (b) disproportionate share hospital payment amounts paid to and retained by each hospital during fiscal year 2005 that pertain to fiscal year 2005. If payments during the fiscal year exceed the hospital's baseline amount, no additional payments will be made to the hospital except the federal portion of allowable disproportionate share hospital payments for which the hospital can certify allowable match. If payments during the fiscal year are less than the baseline amount, the hospital will be paid a state grant equal to the difference between payments during the fiscal year and the applicable baseline amount. Payment of the state grant shall be made in the applicable fiscal year and ((is)) distributed in monthly payments. The grants will be recalculated and redistributed as the baseline is updated during the fiscal year. The grant payments are subject to an interim ((cost)) settlement within eleven months after the end of the fiscal year. A final ((cost)) settlement shall be performed within two years after the end of the related fiscal year. To the extent that ((a final cost)) either settlement determines that a hospital has received funds in excess of what it would have received ((under the methodology in place in fiscal year 2008)) as described in this subsection, the hospital must repay ((these)) the excess amounts to the state when requested. (($74,066,000)) $61,728,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2008, of which $6,570,000 is appropriated in section 204(1) of this act and the balance in this section, and (($59,776,000)) $57,894,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2009, of which $6,570,000 is appropriated in section 204(1) of this act and the balance in this section, are provided solely for state grants for the participating hospitals.

The amounts are conditioned on the department satisfying the requirements of section 902 of this act.

      (10) When a person is ineligible for medicaid solely by reason of residence in an institution for mental diseases, the department shall provide the person with the same benefits as he or she would receive if eligible for medicaid, using state-only funds to the extent necessary.

      (11) The department is authorized to use funds appropriated in this section to purchase goods and supplies through direct contracting with vendors when the department determines it is cost-effective to do so.
