317:30-5-96.4.Outlier intensity adjustment
[Revised 07-01-10]
Subject to approval by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), an outlier payment may be made to instate hospitals and PRTFs on a case by case basis, to promote access for those members who require expensive care. The intent of the outlier adjustment is to reflect the increased staffing requirements, co-morbidities and longer lengths of stay, for children with developmental disabilities or eating disorders. This adjustment is limited to 60 days annually.
