Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Long Term Acute Care Hospital Quality Improvement Transfer Program Act. Provides that the Department of Healthcare and Family Services' annual medical program report shall include, but not be limited to, LTAC hospital specific quality measures under specified provisions of the Act. Provides that every Medicaid managed care organization shall allow every LTAC hospital qualified under certain provisions of the Act in its service area an opportunity to be a network contracted facility at the plan's standard terms, conditions, and a rate no less than the Medicaid fee-for-service rate. Provides that nothing in provisions concerning network adequacy prevents a managed care organization and LTAC hospital from agreeing to other reimbursement arrangements different from the Medicaid fee-for-service rate. Provides that with certain exceptions, a Medicaid managed care organization shall only terminate or refuse to renew a contract with a qualified LTAC hospital if specified conditions are met. Provides that a Medicaid managed care organization may terminate or refuse to renew a contract with a LTAC hospital for a material breach of the contract, including, but not limited to, failure to grant reasonable and timely access to the Medicaid managed care organization's care coordinators and other providers, termination from the Medicare or Medicaid program, or revocation of license.
