Special Notice: State Teaching Hospital Payments

The Division of Medicaid and Health Financing (DMHF) is submitting a change to the Medicaid State Plan to update provisions for state teaching hospital payments in relation to the Consumer Price Index.

This amendment, therefore, removes a reference to a table no longer published by the United States Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics, to calculate inflation trends for these types of payments.

This State Plan Amendment (SPA 18-0005-UT) does not affect total annual expenditures for the Medicaid program.

The SPA is pending approval from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services and the proposed effective date is July 1, 2018.

A copy of this change may be obtained from Craig Devashrayee (801-538-6641), or by writing the Technical Writing Unit, Utah Department of Health, P.O. Box 143102, Salt Lake City, UT 84114-3102. Comments are welcome at the same address. Copies of the change are also available at local county health department offices.
