KHA is excited to announce the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has approved Kentucky's submission of a proposal for the Hospital Rate Improvement Program (HRIP) — a delivery system and payment initiative under Mediaid managed care plan contracts.
According to the Cabinet for Health and Family Services (CHFS), they have included a request for the funds with the Cabinet's draw from CMS that will happen in the first quarter of calendar year 2020. KHA expects the review of data files will be finalized in the next several weeks. Once these are approved, KHA hopes CHFS will commence its official process in January or February.
