Supplemental payment programs have long been available to qualifying hospitals and other healthcare providers to help fill the gap, or loss, between the cost of providing services to Medicaid patients and the payment received. Today, many states, including Texas, allow government EMS providers to participate in similar programs.
Established in 2009, the Texas Ambulance Supplemental Payment Program (TASPP) offers EMS providers in the state the potential opportunity to receive additional funds above the standard Medicaid rate to supplement transport costs for Medicaid and uninsured patients. However, many providers haven’t taken advantage of the program either because they’re unaware of it or they’re concerned about how to set it up and manage it.
This Webinar will help you better understand:
- The history of the TASPP
- Requirements for participation in the TASPP
- How the TASPP is administered by the State
- How to enroll in the TASPP
- What’s involved in establishing and managing the program
The presentation will be followed by a Q&A session.
