Dobson | DaVanzo provided expert consulting and testimony concerning hospital taxes and Medicaid rates for the Connecticut Hospital Association (CHA) over a period of several years. The CHA just received a “final” settlement. The settlement was complex involving approval by the State legislature, CMS approval of numerous plan amendments, and approval by the Connecticut (CT) Superior Court. Hospitals in CT will receive a one-time payment and various rate increases. It was an “amazing” journey with an outcome acceptable to both hospitals and the State. This settlement is an example of how complex payment issues can be resolved in a way that ultimately assures continued quality care for CT residents.
