CMS Approves Medi-Cal 30-Month Hospital Fee Program
Due to CHA's efforts, CMS issued 3 key approvals June 22

Due to CHA’s significant efforts, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) issued last Friday three key approvals for the Medi-Cal 30-month hospital fee program. CMS approved the entire fee funding (tax), inpatient payments and outpatient payments. State legislation, SB 920 (Hernandez, D-Los Angeles), which contains CHA’s technical changes and CMS-required changes in the previously-enacted hospital fee program, will be heard in the Assembly Health Committee next week.
