  Hospitals Deemed Disproportionate Share  

Feedback Form    

  Due to reductions in Agency budgets for SFY 2016, ODMHSAS is seeking to amend a State Plan page related to the deemed disproportionate share payment for hospitals to have the denominator include days attributable to Medicaid patients between 21 and 65 years of age in an Institution for Mental Diseases (IMD). The change is necessary in order to increase revenues to Griffin Memorial Hospital to balance ODMHSAS' state budget in accordance with Article 10, Section 23 of the Oklahoma Constitution, which prohibits a state agency from spending more money than is allocated.
