Title or Subject: Medicaid State Plan Amendment (SPA) 15-0028 Outpatient Hospital Payments.
Effective Date: July 16, 2015.
Description: The health care authority (HCA) intends to submit medicaid SPA 15-0028 to reflect current policy and practice for paying hospital outpatient facilities. The changes will update the effective date of the outpatient fee schedule and reflect the annual changes to the hospital conversion factors.
This SPA will update the medicaid state plan so it reflects current practice and policy; no major program changes are anticipated. This SPA is anticipated to have no effect on annual aggregate expenditures.
The SPA is in the development process; therefore a copy is not yet available for review.
