Rate-Setting Update

Carl J. Pucci in Finance & Reimbursement

Although DOH did not conduct an August rate-setting briefing, they have shared an updated outline of various rate packages, as well as current initiatives presently under way.  Attached is the outline for your review.

In addition, please note the following with respect to key issues:

  • The 2013 CRA Reconciliation calculation posting is still pending per DOH.
  • The July 2014 CMI adjustment and the 5% CMI correction packages slated for cycle 1983 would have a check date of 8/24/15 with a release date of 9/9/15.  These rates should be posted to the HCS by weeks end.
  • As reported earlier, the 2013 and 2014 Quality Pool payments are on hold due to impending litigation.
  • The Capital Streamlining, Energy Efficiency and Advanced Training initiatives are all progressing towards Fourth Quarter 2015 implementation.  NYSHFA is actively involved in current workgroup meetings to best represent members’ interests.

DOH will hold its next briefing in early September, and a full rate-setting update will follow.
