TITLE 56
PUBLIC ASSISTANCE AND WELFARE
CHAPTER 14
IDAHO HOSPITAL ASSESSMENT ACT
56-1404.  Assessments. (1) All private hospitals, except those exempted under section 56-1408, Idaho Code, shall make payments to the fund in accordance with this chapter. Subject to section 56-1410, Idaho Code, an annual assessment on both inpatient and outpatient services is determined for each qualifying hospital for each state fiscal year in an amount calculated by multiplying the rate, as set forth in subsections (2)(b) and (3)(b) of this section, by the assessment base, as set forth in subsection (5) of this section.
(2) (a)  The department shall calculate the private hospital upper payment limit gap for both inpatient and outpatient services. The upper payment limit gap is the difference between the maximum allowable payments eligible for federal match, less medicaid payments not financed using hospital assessment funds. The upper payment limit gap shall be calculated separately for hospital inpatient and outpatient services. Medicaid disproportionate share payments shall be excluded from the calculation.
(b)  The department shall calculate the upper payment limit assessment rate for each state fiscal year to be the percentage that, when multiplied by the assessment base as defined in subsection (5) of this section, equals the upper payment limit gap determined in paragraph (a) of this subsection.
(3) (a)  The department shall calculate the disproportionate share allotment amount to be paid to private in-state hospitals.
(b)  The department shall calculate the disproportionate share assessment rate for private in-state hospitals to be the percentage that, when multiplied by the assessment base as defined in subsection (5) of this section, equals the amount of state funding necessary to pay the private in-state hospital disproportionate share allotment determined in paragraph (a) of this subsection.
(4)  For private in-state hospitals, the assessments calculated pursuant to subsections (2) and (3) of this section shall not be greater than two and one-half percent (2.5%) of the assessment base as defined in subsection (5) of this section.
(5)  The assessment base shall be the hospital’s net patient revenue for the applicable period. "Net patient revenue" for state fiscal year 2009 shall be determined using the most recent data available from each hospital’s fiscal year 2004 medicare cost report on file with the department on June 30, 2008, without regard to any subsequent adjustments or changes to such data. Net patient revenue for each state fiscal year thereafter shall be determined in the same manner using a rolling yearly schedule for each hospital’s fiscal year medicare cost report on file with the department on June 30 of each subsequent year without regard to any subsequent adjustments or changes to such data.
