II.  For the biennium ending June 30, 2019, in the event estimated Medicaid enhancement tax revenue under account 05-95-47-470010-7948 is less than budgeted as a result of payments authorized in paragraph I, the amount necessary to address the shortfall is hereby appropriated to the department of health and human services.  The governor is authorized to draw a warrant for such sum out of any money in the treasury not otherwise appropriated.

162:32  Uncompensated Care and Medicaid Fund.  Amend RSA 167:64, I(a) to read as follows:

(a)(1)  The commissioner shall provide reimbursement for uncompensated care costs [in accordance with the approved schedule of payments] from the uncompensated care and Medicaid fund through either Medicaid rate adjustments, Medicaid supplemental payments, MCO directed payments to hospitals, [or] disproportionate share hospital payment adjustments, or any other allowable Medicaid payment, including a combination thereof, provided however that no hospital shall receive any such reimbursement for uncompensated care costs unless it is a qualified hospital as defined in subparagraph (b)(1).  Funds available under this section shall also be used to make provider payments and to support Medicaid services and programs administered by the department in amounts directed by the budget in each year of the biennium.

[(2) Expenditure of revenues deposited to the uncompensated care and Medicaid fund shall be made for the following purposes in the following order of priority in fiscal year 2015:

(A)  To support medical provider payments as budgeted in each year of the biennium;

(B) To make disproportionate share hospital payments to support up to 75 percent of the uncompensated care costs of New Hampshire's hospitals with critical access designation consistent with the requirements of 42 U.S.C. section 1396r-4(g) and any relevant federal regulations promulgated thereunder as budgeted in each year of the biennium based on available funding, to be shared among such hospitals in proportion to the amount of uncompensated care provided;

(C) To make disproportionate share hospital payments to support the uncompensated care costs of New Hampshire's general hospitals without critical access designation shared among such hospitals consistent with the requirements of 42 U.S.C. section 1396r-4(g) and any relevant federal regulations promulgated thereunder in proportion to the amount of uncompensated care provided with funds available from net Medicaid enhancement tax revenue received by the state in fiscal year 2015 in excess of $190,300,000; and

(D) To make a disproportionate share hospital payment to each hospital that meets the criteria set forth for "deemed disproportionate share hospitals" as that term is defined under 42 U.S.C. section 1396r-4 up to an amount as budgeted in each year of the biennium based on available funding.

(3)  Subject to subparagraph (a)(3)(D),]

(2)  Expenditure of revenues deposited to the uncompensated care and Medicaid fund shall be made for the following purposes in the following order of priority in fiscal years [2016, 2017, 2018, and 2019, and in addition in fiscal years 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2019, if New Hampshire hospitals' total aggregate uncompensated care costs as reported to the department in any such fiscal year is less than $350,000,000, the state shall pay New Hampshire's hospitals not less than $175,000,000 in disproportionate share hospital payments, shared among such hospitals in proportion to the amount of uncompensated care provided; provided that New Hampshire hospitals with a critical access hospital designation shall continue to receive reimbursements of no less than 75 percent of each hospital's uncompensated care costs and no hospital shall be paid disproportionate share hospital payments of more than 100 percent of uncompensated care costs] 2018 through 2024.  However, no hospital shall be paid uncompensated care cost payments of more than 100 percent of the governing hospital-specific limit on disproportional share hospital payments under Title XIX of the Social Security Act and the provisions of all federal regulations promulgated thereunder:

(A)  To make [disproportionate share hospital] uncompensated care cost payments, including the state share and matching federal share, to New Hampshire hospitals with and without critical access designation in the following order of priority, [, provided that, in fiscal years 2016 and 2017, the New Hampshire hospitals shall not be paid more than a cap of $224,000,000 in disproportionate share hospital payments and in fiscal years 2018 and 2019 the New Hampshire hospitals shall not be paid more than a cap of $241,900,000 in disproportionate share hospital payments] and in the following amounts: fiscal year 2018 – a sum equaling 92.2 percent of money collected pursuant to RSA 84-A for the fiscal year; fiscal year 2019 – a sum equaling 90.2 percent of money collected pursuant to RSA 84-A for the fiscal year; and fiscal years 2020 through 2024 - a sum equaling 86 percent of money collected pursuant to RSA 84-A for the fiscal year.  Notwithstanding the foregoing sums for each fiscal year, in no event shall the amounts paid to hospitals as uncompensated care cost hospital payments, including the New Hampshire Hospital, in any particular fiscal year exceed the state share for matching the maximum state disproportionate share hospital allotment established under 42 U.S.C. section 1396r-4(f) for that fiscal year plus the matching federal share.  If the maximum state disproportionate share hospital allotment established under 42 U.S.C. section 1396r-4(f) for any fiscal year, less the uncompensated care cost hospital payments to be made to New Hampshire Hospital, plus state matching funds equal to the available federal state disproportionate share hospital allotment for uncompensated care cost hospital payments is less than a sum equaling the percentage of money collected pursuant to RSA 84-A for the fiscal year, any remaining amount, including state and federal share, of the foregoing sums equaling the percentage of money collected pursuant to RSA 84-A for the fiscal year shall be paid to the hospitals as supplemental Medicaid payments, MCO directed payments to hospitals, increased hospital service provider rates, or any other allowable Medicaid payment:

(i)  To support 75 percent of the uncompensated care costs of New Hampshire's hospitals with critical access designation consistent with the requirements of 42 U.S.C. section 1396r-4(g) and any relevant federal regulations promulgated thereunder to be shared among such hospitals in proportion to the amount of uncompensated care provided;

(ii)  To make [disproportionate share hospital] payments for uncompensated care costs to [support 50 percent of the uncompensated care costs of] New Hampshire's hospitals without critical access hospital designation [in fiscal year 2016 and 2017 and 55 percent of uncompensated care costs of New Hampshire's hospitals without critical access hospital designation in fiscal year 2018 and fiscal year 2019 and in fiscal years thereafter consistent with the requirements of 42 U.S.C. section 1396r-4(g) and any relevant federal regulations promulgated thereunder in proportion to the amount of uncompensated care provided and up to the remaining amount of the applicable cap set forth in subparagraph (a)(3)(A), but not less than the amount guaranteed in disproportionate share hospital payments as set forth in subparagraph (a)(3); and] in proportion to the amount of uncompensated care provided by each hospital from the sum equal to the remainder of the percentage of money collected pursuant to RSA 84-A for the fiscal year specified in subparagraph (a)(2)(A).

(iii)  If there is a change to the federal definition of uncompensated care costs that would result in a decrease to the calculation in subparagraph (i), the percentage of allowable uncompensated care costs for New Hampshire's hospitals with critical access designation percentage of allowable uncompensated care costs shall increase from 75 percent to a percentage that would be equivalent to their receiving 75 percent of uncompensated care costs calculated without regard to payments from Medicare or third party payers as allowable on the date of the enactment of this provision, except that no hospital shall be paid disproportionate share hospital payments of more than 100 percent of the governing hospital-specific limit on disproportional share hospital payments under Title XIX of the Social Security Act.  If increasing the percentage of the allowable uncompensated care costs would exceed 100 percent of the governing hospital specific limit, any amount in excess shall be paid to the New Hampshire hospitals with critical access designation as supplemental Medicaid payments, MCO directed payments to hospitals, increased hospital service provider rates, or any other allowable Medicaid payments.

(B)  To make a [disproportionate share hospital] payment for uncompensated care costs to each hospital that meets the criteria set forth for "deemed disproportionate share hospitals" as that term is defined under 42 U.S.C. section 1396r-4 up to [an amount as budgeted] $250,000 in each year of the biennium as set forth in subparagraph (b)(1)(A).  For fiscal years 2018 and 2019 only, any payment under this subparagraph shall not reduce the payments made under subparagraphs (a)(2)(A)(i)-(iii).

(C)  To increase hospital service provider rates in fiscal year 2020 through fiscal year 2024, by an amount equal to 5 percent of the revenue collected pursuant to RSA 84-A for the fiscal year.

(D)  Any remaining funds produced from the Medicaid enhancement tax shall be used to support provider payments and to support Medicaid services and programs administered by the department.

(E)  Hospitals entitled to payments under subparagraphs (a)(2)(A)(i)-(iii) or (a)(2)(C) have a vested contractual right to receive these payments in fiscal years 2018 through 2024 as limited by paragraph IV.

[(D)  Notwithstanding any provision to the contrary, in each of fiscal years 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2019, the amount of uncompensated care reimbursed to non-critical access hospitals shall be reduced in both state contribution and federal match by any shortfall in net Medicaid enhancement tax revenues received below the following thresholds: fiscal year 2016-$220.5 million; fiscal year 2017-$228.1 million; fiscal year 2018-$235.9 million; and fiscal year 2019-$243.4 million.  However, to the extent the aggregate uncompensated care for all hospitals falls below $375 million and the Medicaid enhancement tax rate is further reduced as set forth in RSA 84-A:2, V, then the threshold for fiscal year 2018 shall be $229.4 million and for fiscal year 2019 shall be $235.7 million.  Further, the caps in subparagraph (a)(3)(A) and the reimbursements and caps in subparagraph (a)(3)(A)(ii) shall be reduced by 85 percent of the difference between total Medicaid enhancement tax revenue calculated at 5.5 percent of net patient services revenue and Medicaid enhancement tax revenue at the current tax rate for the applicable fiscal year.]

162:33  Uncompensated Care and Medicaid Fund.  RSA 167:64, IV is repealed and reenacted to read as follows:

IV.  Payment of the federal share of uncompensated care cost hospital payments, supplemental Medicaid payments, MCO directed payments to hospitals, increased hospital service provider rates, and any other allowable Medicaid payment under this section is contingent upon New Hampshire receiving those federal funds and any necessary CMS approvals that the department is required to secure pursuant to paragraph III.

162:34  Medicaid Enhancement Tax.  Amend RSA 84-A:2, V to read as follows:

V.  For the taxable period ending June 30, 2018, and for every taxable period thereafter, a tax is imposed at a rate of 5.4 percent upon the net patient services revenue of every hospital for the hospital's fiscal year ending during the calendar year in which the taxable period begins [unless the total aggregate uncompensated care for hospitals with both a critical and a noncritical access hospital designation falls below $375 million, at which point the tax rate shall be 5.25 percent].

162:35  Effective Date.

I.  Sections 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15, 17, 18, and 21 of this act shall take effect June 8, 2018.

II.  Sections 1, 2, and 4 of this act shall take effect July 1, 2018.

III.  Sections 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 19, and 22 of this act shall take effect January 4, 2019.

IV.  Section 3 of this act shall take effect July 1, 2019.

V.  The remainder of this act shall take effect upon its passage.

 

Approved: June 06, 2018

Effective Date:

I. Sections 5,7,9,11,13,15,17,18, and 21 shall take effect June 8, 2018.

III. Sections 6,8,10,12,16,19, and 22 shall take effect January 4, 2019.
