CCS HCS SS SB 732, 2016    (New Section - as Truly Agreed)    

208.1030. 1. An eligible provider, as described in subsection 2 of this section, may, in addition to the rate of payment that the provider would otherwise receive for Medicaid ground emergency medical transportation services, receive MO HealthNet supplemental reimbursement to the extent provided by law.
     2. A provider shall be eligible for Medicaid supplemental reimbursement if the provider meets the following characteristics during the state reporting period:
     (1) Provides ground emergency medical transportation services to MO HealthNet participants;
     (2) Is enrolled as a MO HealthNet provider for the period being claimed; and
     (3) Is owned, operated, or contracted by the state or a political subdivision.
     3. An eligible provider's Medicaid supplemental reimbursement under this section shall be calculated and paid as follows:
     (1) The supplemental reimbursement to an eligible provider, as described in subsection 2 of this section, shall be equal to the amount of federal financial participation received as a result of the claims submitted under subdivision (2) of subsection 6 of this section;
     (2) In no instance shall the amount certified under subdivision (1) of subsection 5 of this section, when combined with the amount received from all other sources of reimbursement from the MO HealthNet program, exceed one hundred percent of actual costs, as determined under the Medicaid state plan for ground emergency medical transportation services; and
     (3) The supplemental Medicaid reimbursement provided by this section shall be distributed exclusively to eligible providers under a payment methodology based on ground emergency medical transportation services provided to MO HealthNet participants by eligible providers on a per-transport basis or other federally permissible basis. The department of social services shall obtain approval from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services for the payment methodology to be utilized and shall not make any payment under this section prior to obtaining that approval.
     4. An eligible provider, as a condition of receiving supplemental reimbursement under this section, shall enter into and maintain an agreement with the department's designee for the purposes of implementing this section and reimbursing the department of social services for the costs of administering this section. The non-federal share of the supplemental reimbursement submitted to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services for purposes of claiming federal financial participation shall be paid with funds from the governmental entities described in subdivision (3) of subsection 2 of this section and certified to the state as provided in subsection 5 of this section.
     5. Participation in the program by an eligible provider described in this section is voluntary. If an applicable governmental entity elects to seek supplemental reimbursement under this section on behalf of an eligible provider owned or operated by the entity, as described in subdivision (3) of subsection 2 of this section, the governmental entity shall do the following:
     (1) Certify in conformity with the requirements of 42 CFR 433.51 that the claimed expenditures for the ground emergency medical transportation services are eligible for federal financial participation;
     (2) Provide evidence supporting the certification as specified by the department of social services;
     (3) Submit data as specified by the department of social services to determine the appropriate amounts to claim as expenditures qualifying for federal financial participation; and
     (4) Keep, maintain, and have readily retrievable any records specified by the department of social services to fully disclose reimbursement amounts to which the eligible provider is entitled and any other records required by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
     6. The department of social services shall be authorized to seek any necessary federal approvals for the implementation of this section. The department may limit the program to those costs that are allowable expenditures under Title XIX of the Social Security Act, 42 U.S.C. Section 1396, et seq.
     (1) The department of social services shall submit claims for federal financial participation for the expenditures for the services described in subsection 5 of this section that are allowable expenditures under federal law.
     (2) The department of social services shall, on an annual basis, submit any necessary materials to the federal government to provide assurances that claims for federal financial participation shall include only those expenditures that are allowable under federal law.
