AN ACT relating to hospitals.
Amend KRS 142.303 to provide that payments by hospitals for services provided to Medicaid patients shall not be subject to the provider tax unless payments to out-of-state hospitals are reduced to account for the fact that they do not pay the provider tax, and to apply the tax to hospital revenues received during state fiscal year 2003 for each year after fiscal year 2005; create a new section of KRS Chapter 205 to require payments to out-of-state hospitals to be reduced; create a new section of KRS Chapter 205 to require provider tax revenues from hospitals to be used first to increase payments to hospitals.
