HB 1662 – Washington

Status: In Process
Year Introduced: 2023
Link: https://app.leg.wa.gov/billsummary?BillNumber=1662&Year=2023&Initiative=false

This bill amends RCW 74.09.5225 to change the rate multiplier used for hospitals that qualify for a sole community hospital rate enhancement. It codifies the increase from 125 percent to 150 percent of fee for service rates. This amount has been in proviso since FY 2021. Since FY 2022, the 150 percent only applied to sole community hospitals that accepted single bed certifications. This change would codify that percentage without requiring single bed certifications.
