PART II
HUMAN SERVICES

NEW SECTION.  Sec. 201.  FOR THE DEPARTMENT OF SOCIAL AND HEALTH SERVICES

      (1) 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.  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)(a) The health care authority and the department are 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 the Washington medicaid integration partnership (WMIP) and the medicare integrated care project (MICP), the health care authority and the department may combine and transfer such medicaid funds appropriated under sections 204, 206, 208, and 213 of this act as  may be necessary to finance a unified health care plan for the WMIP and the MICP program enrollment.  The WMIP pilot projects shall not exceed a daily enrollment of 6,000 persons, nor expand beyond one county during the 2013-2015 fiscal biennium.  The amount of funding assigned 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, times the number of clients enrolled.  In implementing the WMIP and the MICP, the health care authority and the department may:  (i) Withhold from calculations of "available resources" as set forth in RCW 71.24.025 a sum equal to the capitated rate for enrolled individuals; and (ii) 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.

      (b) If Washington has been selected to participate in phase two of the federal demonstration project for persons dually-eligible for both medicare and medicaid, the department and the authority may initiate the MICP.  Participation in the project shall be limited to persons who are eligible for both medicare and medicaid and to counties in which the county legislative authority has agreed to the terms and conditions under which it will operate.  The purpose of the project shall be to demonstrate and evaluate ways to improve care while reducing state expenditures for persons enrolled both in medicare and medicaid.  To that end, prior to initiating the project, the department and the authority shall assure that state expenditures shall be no greater on either a per person or total basis than the state would otherwise incur.  Individuals who are solely eligible for medicaid may also participate if their participation is agreed to by the health care authority, the department, and the county legislative authority.

      (4) The legislature finds that medicaid payment rates, as calculated by the department pursuant to the appropriations in this act, bear a reasonable relationship to the costs incurred by efficiently and economically operated facilities for providing quality services and will be sufficient to enlist enough providers so that care and services are available to the extent that such care and services are available to the general population in the geographic area.  The legislature finds that cost reports, payment data from the federal government, historical utilization, economic data, and clinical input constitute reliable data upon which to determine the payment rates.

      (5) The department shall to the maximum extent practicable use the same system for delivery of spoken-language interpreter services for  social services appointments as the one established for medical appointments in section 213 of this act.  When contracting directly with an individual to deliver spoken language interpreter services, the department shall only contract with language access providers who are working at a location in the state and who are state-certified or state-authorized, except that when such a provider is not available, the department may use a language access provider who meets other certifications or standards deemed to meet state standards, including interpreters in other states.

      (6) The department shall facilitate enrollment under the medicaid expansion for clients applying for or receiving state funded services from the department and its contractors.  Prior to open enrollment, the department shall coordinate with the health care authority to provide referrals to the Washington health benefit exchange for clients that will be ineligible for the medicaid expansion but are enrolled in coverage that will be eliminated in the transition to the medicaid expansion.

      (c) The juvenile courts and administrative office of the courts shall be responsible for collecting and distributing information and providing access to the data systems to the juvenile rehabilitation administration and the Washington state institute for public policy related to program and outcome data.  The juvenile rehabilitation administration and the juvenile courts will work collaboratively to develop program outcomes that reinforce the greatest cost benefit to the state in the implementation of evidence-based practices and disposition alternatives.

      (9) $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 health care authority's discretion.  During either the interim cost settlement or the final cost settlement, the health care authority shall recoup from the public hospital districts the supplemental payments that exceed the medicaid cost limit and/or the medicare upper payment limit.  The health care authority shall apply federal rules for identifying the eligible incurred medicaid costs and the medicare upper payment limit.

      (10) The health care authority shall continue the inpatient hospital certified public expenditures program for the 2013-2015 fiscal 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 health care authority shall submit reports to the governor and legislature by November 1, 2013, and by November 1, 2014, that evaluate 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 health care authority 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 2014 and fiscal year 2015, hospitals in the program shall be paid and shall retain 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 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.  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 based on the  reimbursement rates developed, implemented, and consistent with policies approved in the 2013-2015 biennial operating appropriations act and in effect on July 1, 2013, (b) one-half of the indigent assistance disproportionate share hospital payment amounts paid to and retained by each hospital during fiscal year 2005, and (c) all of the other disproportionate share hospital payment amounts paid to and retained by each hospital during fiscal year 2005 to the extent the same disproportionate share hospital programs exist in the 2013-2015 fiscal biennium.  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 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 settlement within eleven months after the end of the fiscal year.  A final settlement shall be performed.  To the extent that either settlement determines that a hospital has received funds in excess of what it would have received as described in this subsection, the hospital must repay the excess amounts to the state when requested.  $5,319,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2014, of which $6,570,000 is appropriated in section 204(1) of this act, and $1,141,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2015, of which $6,570,000 is appropriated in section 204(1) of this act, are provided solely for state grants for the participating hospitals.

      (11) The health care authority shall seek public-private partnerships and federal funds that are or may become available to provide on-going support for outreach and education efforts under the federal children's health insurance program reauthorization act of 2009.

      (12) The health care authority shall target funding for maternity support services towards pregnant women with factors that lead to higher rates of poor birth outcomes, including hypertension, a preterm or low birth weight birth in the most recent previous birth, a cognitive deficit or developmental disability, substance abuse, severe mental illness, unhealthy weight or failure to gain weight, tobacco use, or African American or Native American race.  The health care authority shall prioritize evidence-based practices for delivery of maternity support services.  To the extent practicable, the health care authority shall develop a mechanism to increase federal funding for maternity support services by leveraging local public funding for those services.

      (13) Within the amounts appropriated in this section, the health care authority shall provide disproportionate share hospital payments to hospitals that provide services to children in the children's health program who are not eligible for services under Title XIX or XXI of the federal social security act due to their citizenship status.
