Title or Subject: Medicaid State Plan Amendment (SPA) 21-0015 Small Rural Disproportionate Share Hospital Payment Pool Amount.
Effective Date: April 10, 2021.
Description: The health care authority (HCA) intends to submit medicaid SPA 21-0015 to reflect the current total amount of the small rural disproportionate share hospital (SRDSH) total "payment pool" through which SRDSH payments are made. The total payment pool amount currently described in the state plan reflects the previous total amount.
SPA 21-0015 is expected to have no effect on annual aggregate expenditures/payments as it reflects the current payment pool amount.
HCA is in the process of developing the SPA. HCA would appreciate any input or concerns regarding this SPA.
