Wed, 04/27/2022

Notice: Sole Community Inpatient Hospital Enhancement Rates State Plan Amendment 22-0018 Public Notice is now available online.

Description: The Health Care Authority (HCA) intends to submit Medicaid State Plan Amendment (SPA) 22-0018 because the Washington State Legislature recently passed Engrossed Substitute Senate Bill (ESSB) 5693 directing HCA to implement changes to enhancement payments to Sole Community Hospitals that meet certain criteria. In addition, SPA 22-0018 simplifies the enhanced rate information currently in the State Plan by replacing narrative describing time periods and multipliers with a table.
