                STATE OF NEW YORK
                               2023-2024 Regular Sessions
                    IN SENATE
                                    January 31, 2023
        Introduced  by  Sen. HELMING -- read twice and ordered printed, and when
          printed to be committed to the Committee on Health
        AN ACT to amend the public health law, in relation to payments to  rural
          hospitals designated as critical access hospitals
          The  People of the State of New York, represented in Senate and Assem-
        bly, do enact as follows:
     1    Section 1. Subdivision 2-a of section 2807 of the public health law is
     2  amended by adding a new paragraph (j) to read as follows:
     3    (j) Notwithstanding any other provision of  this  subdivision  or  any
     4  other  provision of law to the contrary and, subject to an appropriation
     5  therefor, on and after April first, two thousand twenty-five,  rates  of
     6  payment   for   diagnostic  and  treatment  center  services,  emergency
     7  services, general hospital inpatient and outpatient services, ambulatory
     8  surgical services and referred ambulatory services, provided by a  rural
     9  hospital  designated  as  a  critical access hospital in accordance with
    10  title XVIII of the federal social security act shall  be  equal  to  one
    11  hundred  one  percent of the reasonable costs of a facility in providing
    12  such services to patients eligible for payments made in accordance  with
    13  this  subdivision.  Reasonable  costs  shall  be  determined in a manner
    14  consistent with that used to determine payment for  outpatient  critical
    15  access hospital services provided to beneficiaries of title XVIII of the
    16  federal  social security act. For facilities without adequate cost expe-
    17  rience, such  rates  shall  be  based  on  budgeted  costs  subsequently
    18  adjusted to one hundred one percent of reasonable actual costs.
    19    §  2.  This act shall take effect immediately; provided, however, that
    20  the implementation of the provisions of this act shall be subject to the
    21  appropriation of moneys specifically for the purposes thereof.

         EXPLANATION--Matter in italics (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                              [ ] is old law to be omitted.
