This bill modifies the requirements for Medicaid reimbursement to an emergency service transporter for services provided in response to a 9-1-1 call. Reimbursement must be provided for (1) medical services provided to a Medicaid recipient in response to a 9-1-1 call in situations when the recipient is not transported to a facility and (2) for “mobile integrated health services” (MIH services). Reimbursement for MIH services must be specified in regulations and at least $100 per interaction. In fiscal 2023, the Maryland Department of Health (MDH) must increase the amount of reimbursement by $50 for both (1) transportation and medical services and (2) MIH services. MDH must pay at least $150 for such services in subsequent fiscal years. The bill also requires two specified studies and
related reports.
