Proposed Changes In Methods And Standards For Establishing Medical Assistance Payment Rates for Transportation Services

The Department of Healthcare and Family Services (HFS) proposes to change the methods and standards by which certain non-emergency transportation services are reimbursed under the Illinois Medical Assistance program. These changes are being made in order to assure that reimbursement for services rendered by these classes of providers are consistent with the State’s fiscal year 2007 budget while maintaining access to necessary medical services. These changes will be e ffective with dates of service on or after July 1, 2006.

It is estimated that these changes will result in an annual increase in Medicaid liability of $5.2 million.
