HHSC Releases Ambulance Medicaid Rates

On April 19, the Health & Human Services Commission released proposed adjustments to Medicaid reimbursement rates for ambulances, effective Sept. 1, 2018.

Ground EMS would face a cut of a little over 1 percent for ancillary codes billed by ambulance providers. It affects neither ground ambulance base rates nor ground ambulance mileage. Previously, cuts of as much as 36% had been proposed.

Fixed wing air mileage would face a cut of a little over 28 percent per mile.

A meeting to receive public comment will be held on May 3 in Austin. The full proposal can be read online here.
