OHA’s Supplemental Hospital Offset Payment Program (SHOPP), passed by the state Legislature in 2011, came to fruition in 2012. OHA worked closely with the Oklahoma Health Care Authority during the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’(CMS) final review and approval of SHOPP, and then facilitated communication of the program’s operating procedures to hospitals.
CMS approved SHOPP for federal matching in January 2012, retroactive to July 1, 2011. Under SHOPP, hospitals paid assessments totaling $153 million annually to the state. With federal matching, SHOPP increased Medicaid payments for hospital services by $341 million, and funded another $83 million in general Medicaid program payments.
For 2020, hospitals will pay SHOPP assessments of $180 million, and receive supplemental payments of $453 million.
