Hospital Reimbursement Rates
Joint Budget Committee. For the 2017-18 state fiscal year, if the amount of revenue collected from the hospital provider fee is insufficient to fully fund all of the statutory purposes for the fee, the bill requires any reduction to be taken from hospital reimbursements.
The bill reduces the cash funds appropriation from the hospital provider fee in the 2017 annual general appropriation act by $264,100,000.
