12VAC30-70-435. Lump sum payment.

A. In addition to the DRG payment, DMAS shall make a one-time, lump sum payment of $12,243,204 to eligible Virginia hospitals participating in the Medicaid program. This payment shall be made in two equal, semi-annual amounts during fiscal year 2001. For purposes of distribution, each hospital's share of the total amount shall be determined as follows:

1. DMAS shall determine the total operating payments due each hospital for inpatient hospital services provided from January 1, 2000, through June 30, 2000, using hospital claims data from discharges in that period.

2. DMAS shall determine the total operating payments that would have been due each hospital for the same services had the inpatient hospital rates and weights applicable in fiscal year 1998 been continued with inflation for fiscal years 1999 and 2000.

3. The difference between the two values calculated in subdivisions 1 and 2 of this subsection, summed across all hospitals, is the statewide difference. Each hospital-specific difference divided by the statewide difference is the hospital-specific percent share of the statewide difference.

4. The hospital-specific percent share of the statewide difference, times the total funds provided by this appropriation, is the hospital-specific lump sum payment to be paid in two equal semi-annual payments during fiscal year 2001. This payment shall be made as an increase to reimbursement for services provided to Medicaid recipients during state fiscal year 2001. For each hospital, the hospital-specific lump sum payment amount shall be divided by the number of DRG cases in the hospital discharged from July 1, 2000, through December 31, 2000, on or before April 30, 2001. This per case amount shall be paid to each hospital for each of the cases discharged by the hospital during this specified time period, as determined by DMAS.

B. The Department of Medical Assistance Services shall provide the data used, specific calculation, and mechanics of the payment adjustment to the Virginia Medicaid Hospital Policy Advisory Council.
