May 1, 2012 - April 30, 2013
Act 49 of 2010 authorizes the Department of Public Welfare to impose a statewide hospital assessment on the net operating revenue of all Pennsylvania licensed acute care hospitals (with some exclusions) as of July 1, 2010 and continuing for three years.
The assessment will raise a significant amount of revenue – approximately $500 million annually – that will enable the commonwealth to transition to an updated hospital inpatient payment system, to make changes to existing disproportionate share payments and supplemental payments, and to create new payments where applicable.
The Department of Public Welfare worked in collaboration with the Hospital and Health System Association of Pennsylvania to develop the assessment model as well as changes to the hospital reimbursement system.
