1 John O’Hearn Region 14 Anchor Contact Director of Regional Development Medical Center Health System

2   March 1 st, 2012- Switch to Medicaid Managed Care  Upper Payment Limit (UPL) Program no longer viable  Supplemental Funding crucial to Texas Hospitals  New Source of Funding identified though 1115 Waiver  Protects UPL funding and expands pool of money  Based of California Model  Initial conversations started in July 2011  Places decisions regarding health care delivery system improvements in the hands of local hospitals and hospital districts, rather than a top-down, one-size-fits-all approach.  Includes entities outside of hospitals 1115 Waiver Background

3   HHSC surveyed large urban hospitals in Texas to identify potential DSRIP projects (October 2011).  HHSC hosted an RHP Planning Summit focusing on DSRIP development with representatives from hospitals, associations and leadership offices (November 2011).  Clinical Champions created in February to provide clinical input into DSRIP project selection.  20 Regional Healthcare Partnerships were formed (May 2012)  The RHPs are based on distinct geographic boundaries that generally reflect patient flow patterns for the region  The RHPs have identified local funding sources to help finance the non-federal share of DSRIP payments for Performing Providers  The RHPs have identified an Anchoring Entity to help coordinate RHP activities 1115 Waiver Background

4   Program Funding and Mechanics (PFM) Protocol: Outlines the minimum number of projects, organization of the RHP Plan, plan review process, required reporting, funding allocations, project valuation, and plan modifications.  Approved August 31, 2012  RHP Planning Protocol: menu of projects, milestones, and metrics eligible for DSRIP funds.  Approved September 26, 2012 1115 Waiver Background

5   Uncompensated Care Pool (UC)  Pays hospitals based on uncompensated care costs reimbursable today and additional uncompensated care costs not being reimbursed today, such as costs for clinics, physicians, and pharmacies. Payments will be based on costs, not charges.  Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment Pool (DSRIP)  Payments for system improvements identified in Regional Healthcare Partnerships delivery system reform and improvement plans.  Plans will identify approaches, baseline data, and timelines for transforming and improving indigent and Medicaid health care systems to improve clients experience, increase quality, and better manage costs in Medicaid and indigent programs. 1115 Waiver Background

6   A transfer of public funds from a governmental entity or entities to HHSC.  Any unit of local government, such as:  Public hospital  Hospital District  County  City  Local Mental Health Authority Intergovernmental Transfers (IGT)

7   A governmental entity can IGT if:  The funds are in the governmental entity’s administrative control  The funds are not federal funds  The funds are public funds, not private funds  There is no statutory or constitutional requirement that relates to the funds  The funds are not impermissible provider-related donations  Private Medicaid providers can support community activities, and local governments that make IGTs may take account of that support in deciding whether to make an IGT that will be used to fund Medicaid payments to those providers. Intergovernmental Transfers (IGT)

8   Coordinating the development of a community needs assessment for the region  Engaging stakeholders in the region, including the public  Coordinating the development the 5-year RHP Plan that best meets community needs in collaboration with RHP participants; Ensuring that the RHP Plan is consistent with Attachment I, Attachment J, and all other State/waiver requirements  Facilitating RHP Plan compliance with the RHP Plan Checklist  Transmitting the RHP Plan and any associated plan amendments to HHSC on behalf of the RHP  Ongoing monitoring and annual reporting (as required in paragraph 20) on status of projects and performance of Performing Providers in the region  Ongoing communication with HHSC on behalf of the RHP. MCHS’s Role as Anchor

10   Tier 4 RHP the RHP contains less than 3 percent share of the statewide population under 200 percent FPL as defined by the U.S. Census Bureau: 2006-2010 American Community Survey for Texas (ACS);  An RHP is classified in Tier 4 if one of the following three criteria are met: (1) the RHP contains less than 3 percent share of the statewide population under 200 percent FPL as defined by the U.S. Census Bureau: 2006-2010 American Community Survey for Texas (ACS); (2) the RHP does not have a public hospital; or (3) the RHP has public hospitals that provide less than 1 percent of the region's uncompensated care. RHP 14

11   Regional Healthcare Partnership (RHP) maps were finalized on May 30, 2012  RHP 14’s First meeting was held on June 15 th, 2012  Participating entities met twice a month  Mix of WebEx and Face-to-face  Meetings covered updates, timelines, and general program knowledge Planning Process

16   Anchor receives 20% of funding  Remaining 80%  Remaining DY 1 RHP DSRIP funding (less the Anchoring Entity DY 1 DSRIP) shall be allocated to Performing Providers based on an allocation formula. The allocation formula divides an RHP Plan's estimated dollar value of a Performing Provider's DSRIP projects in Categories 1-4 over the DYs 2-5 period by the total value of the RHP's DSRIP projects over the DYs 2-5 period. The resulting percentage is then multiplied by the RHP's remaining DY DY1 Allocation Formula

A hospital's uncompensated care is measured by its FFY 2012 Hospital Specific Limit (HSL) or hospital's charity care costs reported in the 2010 Annual Hospital Survey trended to 2012 by an annual trend rate of approximately 2 percent (4 percent total trend over the two-year period) -50% Pass 1 Allocations

18   If there are unused DSRIP allocation amounts after the first pass, the RHP may redirect the unused allocations to fund new projects.  An individual hospital provider is not limited to its DSRIP allocation in the second pass.  Physician practice groups not affiliated with academic health science centers and new hospitals may participate in DSRIP projects if they identify a source of non-federal match.  Pass 2 Allocations can’t be determined until all Pass 1 projects are submitted Pass 2

19   25 percent allocation of unused Pass 1 DSRIP funds to “new” Performing Providers  15 percent to new hospitals.  10 percent to physician practices not affiliated with an academic health science center.  75 percent allocation to Performing Providers that have Pass 1 projects  Each Performing Provider is allocated a proportion based on the funding of Pass 1 projects in DYs 2-5.  Within an RHP, Performing Providers may combine their individual Pass 2 DSRIP allocations to fund a DSRIP project. Pass 2

20   A minimum number of major safety net hospitals must participate in DSRIP as Performing Providers  Tier 4 At least 1 – MMH and MCHS qualify  RHPs shall fund a minimum percent of the Pass 1 DSRIP allocated to non-profit and private hospitals based on Tier level.  Tier 4 At least 5%- RHP 14 qualifies Pass 2 Eligibility
