1 What’s Happening in the Healthcare Industry? David C. Salsberry, Executive Vice President/CFO JPS Health Network August 14, 2012 1

2 Healthcare Industry Discussion Outline Nationwide…….Accountable Care Act In Texas……1115 Waiver Hot Topics in the Healthcare Industry…… Where do we go from here…. 2

3 ACA Supreme Court Ruling Expansion Coercive Penalty Coercive Expansion Constitutional Ginsburg Sotomayor Roberts Breyer Kagan Scalia Thomas Kennedy Alito Remedy: No Loss of Existing Funds Individual Mandate vs Medicaid Expansion 3 National Association of Public Hospitals and Health Systems

4 The New “Status Quo” Most of ACA remains in place Exchanges Insurance Reforms Delivery System Reforms Payment Changes Revenue Raisers Etc. The foundation of the ACA’s affordable coverage is now unstable Repositioning of power between the federal government and the states No change to ACA provisions that assumed Medicaid coverage would occur without further legislative action 4

5 Pre-Decision: Congress’ Underlying Premise Individual Mandate + Subsidies Medicaid DSH cuts Medicare DSH cuts Other provider payment cuts Mandatory Medicaid Expansion 5

6 Post Decision: Raw Deal for Hospitals Individual Mandate + Subsidies Medicaid DSH cuts Medicare DSH cuts Other provider payment cuts Medicaid Expansion Optional 6

7 Medicaid DSH Reductions YearReduction 2014$500 million 2015$600 million 2016$600 million 2017$1.8 billion 2018$5 billion 2019$5.6 billion 2020$4 billion 2021$4 billion Millions 7

8 Coverage Expansion in an Opt-Out State 100% 133% 400% Residual Uninsured -Undocumented immigrants -Those exempted from mandate/penalty -Those paying penalty Citizens/ Legal Immigrants New Immigrants Citizens/ Legal Immigrants 8 National Association of Public Hospitals and Health Systems

9 New Congressional Budget Office Estimates “Optional” expansion saves Federal Government $84 billion over 10 years (largely from fewer people covered) Only 1/3 of states will expand fully In the aggregate, 3 million people will not be covered due to SCOTUS 6-10 million fewer covered people than estimated in 2010. 9 National Association of Public Hospitals and Health Systems

10 Options for states that opt out of the ACA’s Medicaid expansion? Why would a state want to opt out? Financial Risk Concerns about the current system – Tom Suehs article Can states opt out of the ACA’s Medicaid expansion? Yes CMS looking for incentives for states to participate Impact on states’ ability to negotiate with CMS Can states opt to implement the expansion for some period of years and then opt out? National Association of Public Hospitals believes so Impact on FMAP unclear for DSH and Waiver payments States might also delay expansion 10

11 A Weary Populous? 11 National Association of Public Hospitals and Health Systems

12 Can a GOP-Controlled Congress Repeal the ACA? Reconciliation Needs only 51 votes Not subject to filibuster Any items without a fiscal impact subject to a point of order (60 votes needed to overcome) Used to adopt the ACA Subject to Presidential veto 12

13 What does this mean for Texas Health Systems? Significant federal funding is at stake ACA Reimbursement cuts DSH Program Take a proactive role in encouraging Texas to adopt the Medicaid expansion Watch for the impact on: remaining uninsured employers Closely monitor the impact of political movements at the national level and the development of policies and program rules at the federal level 13

14 1115 Waiver 14

15 Why Did Texas Adopt a Waiver? Texas Medicaid budget shortfall Managed care imperative Collateral damage – elimination of UPL CMS desire to move away from UPL programs and fund pay for performance Increased access Quality of care Outcomes for a population 15

16 Transform current health care delivery system Become more transparent, accountable and ready to serve existing Medicaid beneficiaries, new Medicaid beneficiaries, and uncompensated care patients Enable the state to achieve Managed Care Goal and preserve funding for uncompensated care Overall goals Expand risk-based managed care statewide Support development and/or maintenance of a coordinated care delivery system through RHPs Improve outcomes while containing costs Protect and/or leverage financing to improve and prepare infrastructure for newly insured populations Transition to quality-based payment system across all providers Provide a mechanism for investments in delivery system reform 1115 Waiver Basics Paper Waiver Purpose 16

17 Key Constructs of the 1115a Waiver Regional Health Partnership (RHP) Payment program bringing providers and others together to look at the health of a population New relationships Care coordination component At the same time preserves governing authority of participants Roles Anchor Entity IGT Entities Provider Participants Collaborative Stakeholders CMS/HHSC 17

18 Funding How are funds generated? Intergovernmental Transfer (IGTs) – generating federal matching funds (.42 cents of IGT returns $1.00 dollar of total funds) How are funds paid? 2 Pools – Uncompensated Care (UC) and Delivery System Redesign Incentive Pool (DSRIP) Opportunity for patient care innovation Increased care coordination and collaboration for a given region’s health outcomes Work in process – CMS/HHSC has provided only a shell program with many details to follow Participation is voluntary and not tied to ACA Key Constructs - continued 18

19 RHP Principles RHPs are formed around the hospitals that used to receive Upper Payment Level (UPL) payments and one of these would serve as an anchor. Anchors serve as the single point of contact, coordinate RHP activities, and serve administrative functions. The anchor does not make decisions regarding other entities’ funds. Develop plans to address local delivery system concerns with a focus on improved access, quality, cost-effectiveness, and coordination. RHP regions should reflect delivery systems and geographic proximity. UC and DSRIP pools are dependent on RHP plan participation. Waiver funds still go directly to hospitals (not to counties) and “performing providers”. 19

20 RHP Principles Anchors will bring RHP participants and stakeholders together to develop plans for public input and review. Participants with match funds will select incentive projects and identify hospitals to receive payments based on incentive projects. Participating hospitals will report performance metrics and receive waiver incentive payments if metrics are reached. RHPs shall provide opportunities for public input in plan development and review. HHSC is seeking broad local plan engagement including: County medical associations and/or societies Local government partners Other key stakeholders RHP Plans include: Regional health assessments Participating local public entities Identification of hospitals receiving incentives and yearly performance measures Incentive projects by DSRIP categories 20
