Notice: Small Rural DSH Payments Medicaid State Plan Amendment 21-0038 Public Notice is now available online

Description: HCA intends to submit Medicaid State Plan Amendment (SPA) 21-0038 to address COVID-related inpatient and outpatient supplemental payments paid to the Small Rural Disproportionate Share Hospitals (SRDSH). Prior to the Public Health Emergency (PHE), the State has not claimed enhanced federal matching funds for these supplemental payments. Therefore, it is necessary to submit this SPA so the State may receive enhanced matching funds. This SPA will not affect the current state share of supplemental payments; the SPA is being submitted to allow the State to claim COVID-related enhanced federal matching funds.
