Regulation Authority :

RIGL 40-6; Section XIX of the Social Security Act

Purpose and Reason :

Pending approval from the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services (CMS), effective October 1, 2009, reimbursement for hospital emergency room visits for all Medical Assistance recipients (including RIte Care and RIte Share), except for those under age twenty-one (21) will be limited to twelve (12) visits per year. Emergency room visits that are immediately followed by admission to an inpatient status will not be included in the twelve (12) visit limit. This change will result in a decrease of an annual aggregate expenditure of $ 2.8 million for Hospital Emergency Room.
