Title or Subject: Medicaid State Plan Amendment (SPA) 23-0029 Administrative Day Rate Update.
Effective Date: January 1, 2024.
Description: The health care authority (HCA) intends to submit SPA 23-0029 in order to update the services payable in addition to the Administrative Day rate. Hospital providers will be able to be paid for certain covered services in addition to the administrative day rate. Services may include hemodialysis, laboratory, and X-rays. The final decisions on which services will be separately payable have not yet been made.
Because final decisions have not yet been made, HCA cannot yet determine an impact on the annual aggregate expenditures/reimbursement/payment for such services.
SPA 23-0029 is in the development process; therefore, a copy is not yet available for review. HCA would appreciate any input or concerns regarding this SPA. To request a copy when it becomes available or submit comments, please contact the person named below (please note that all comments are subject to public review and disclosure, as are the names of those who comment).
