Re: Confirmation of Safety Net Hospital Inpatient Psychiatric Per Diem Rate per Public Act 102-0004
This notice confirms a minimum per diem rate for safety net hospital inpatient psychiatric services required by Public Act 102-0004. The rate applies to claims for both the Medicaid fee-for-service program and the HealthChoice Illinois managed care plans.
The minimum per diem rate for safety net hospital inpatient psychiatric services is now $630.00. The rate increase is effective retroactively to dates of service on or after January 1, 2021.
Adjustments to affected claims will be applied by the Department for fee-for-service claims and by the managed care plans for managed care claims. No further action is required by the providers.
Questions regarding this notice may be directed to the Bureau of Rate Development and Analysis at 217-785-0710 for fee-for-service claims, or the applicable managed care plan.
