TITLE 56
PUBLIC ASSISTANCE AND WELFARE
CHAPTER 14
IDAHO HOSPITAL ASSESSMENT ACT
56-1406.  Inpatient and outpatient adjustment payments. All private hospitals, except those exempted under section 56-1408, Idaho Code, shall be eligible for inpatient and outpatient adjustments as follows:
(1)  For state fiscal year 2009, the inpatient upper payment limit gap for private hospitals shall be divided by medicaid inpatient days for the same hospitals from calendar year 2007 to establish an average per diem adjustment rate. Each private hospital shall receive an annual payment that is equal to the average per diem adjustment rate multiplied by the hospital’s calendar year 2007 medicaid inpatient days. For purposes of this section, "hospital medicaid inpatient days" are days of inpatient hospitalization paid for by the Idaho medical assistance program for the applicable calendar year. Each state fiscal year thereafter shall be determined in the same manner using a rolling yearly schedule to determine the hospital inpatient adjustment payment. In the event that either the inpatient upper payment limit gap for private hospitals or the available hospital assessment funding is lower than anticipated, the department shall apply an across-the-board factor such that the inpatient payment adjustments are maximized, financed entirely from hospital assessment funding, and do not exceed the Idaho inpatient upper payment limit for private hospitals. Payments shall be made no later than thirty (30) days after the receipt of the last deposit of the hospital assessment required in section 56-1404, Idaho Code.
(2)  For state fiscal year 2009, the outpatient upper payment limit gap for private hospitals shall be divided by medicaid outpatient hospital reimbursement for the same hospitals from calendar year 2007 to establish an average percentage adjustment rate. Each hospital, except those exempt under section 56-1408, Idaho Code, shall receive an annual payment that is equal to the average percentage adjustment rate multiplied by the hospital’s calendar year 2007 hospital medicaid outpatient reimbursement. For purposes of this section, "hospital outpatient reimbursement" is reimbursement for hospital outpatient services paid for by the Idaho medical assistance program for the applicable calendar year. Each state fiscal year thereafter shall be determined in the same manner using a rolling yearly schedule to determine the outpatient hospital adjustment payment. In the event that either the outpatient upper payment limit gap for private hospitals or the available hospital assessment funding is lower than anticipated, the department shall apply an across-the-board factor, such that outpatient adjustment payments are maximized, financed entirely from hospital assessment funding, and do not exceed the Idaho outpatient upper payment limit for private hospitals. Payments shall be made no later than thirty (30) days after the receipt of the last deposit of the hospital assessments required in section 56-1404, Idaho Code.
