Supplemental Reimbursement for Public Academic Teaching University Medical Practitioners
(1)Effective for dates of service on or after November 17, 2005, physician and other practitioner services provided by practitioners affiliated with a public academic medical center that meets the following eligibility standards shall be eligible for a supplemental teaching practitioner’s payment for these services provided to eligible Medicaid recipients and paid for directly on a fee-for-service basis, subject to subsections (3) and (4) of this rule. This supplemental payment shall be equal to the difference between the Medicare allowable and Medicaid reimbursement received.
(2)Eligible academic medical centers must be:
(a)The hospital must be located within the State of Oregon (border hospitals are excluded); and
(b)The hospital provides a major medical teaching program, defined as a hospital with more than 200 residents or interns.
(3)Payments under this rule shall be made only to the eligible academic medical centers in accordance with the terms of an intergovermental agreement between the eligible academic medical center and Division of Medical Assistance Programs (Division). Such payments may be made quarterly, but shall be at least paid annually, at the end of each federal fiscal year. Calculation of the payment amount will be based on the annual difference between the practitioners’ Medicare allowable and the Medicaid allowable payments to eligible practitioners for the Medicaid claims paid during the most recently completed state fiscal year. Services included are physician and other practitioners’ services with RVU weights and physician-administered drugs. The RVU rates used for the payment calculation are the Division’s fee established in rule for the date of service payment period.
(4)Allowable Medicaid payments including this supplemental payment remain subject to OAR 410-125-0220 (Services Billed on the Electronic 837I or on the Paper UB-04 and Other Claim Forms)(12) and 410-130-0225 (Teaching Physicians). For purposes of this rule, the allowable Medicaid payments used to calculate the supplemental payment shall be limited to the services that are billed fee-for-service to the Division on the electronic 837P or the paper CMS-1500, and as to which the physician or practitioner is receiving no reimbursement from the eligible academic medical center and the cost of their service is not reported as a direct medical education cost on the Medicare and the Division’s cost report.
