“(a) The General Assembly finds and declares that Delaware’s Medicaid program now covers more than one out of every six Delawareans, and that Medicaid provides not only health security for over 150,000 Delaware citizens, but economic security for them as well.  It is therefore the intent of the General Assembly that every means possible be undertaken to insure that no Delawarean loses Medicaid coverage to which he or she is currently entitled, even in difficult financial times.  It is further the intent of the General Assembly that every effort be made to maximize federal revenue, especially in lieu of budget cuts which would deprive Delawareans of needed health care.

(b) The General Assembly further finds that a provider tax is one such means of maximizing federal revenue, inasmuch as provider taxes are specifically allowed by federal law, and inasmuch as 43 other states and the District of Columbia have enacted some form of provider tax, which taxes have subsequently received federal approval.  The General Assembly therefore directs the Office of Management and Budget, Office of the Controller General and the Department of Health & Social Services to report to the Governor, Governor-elect and members of the General Assembly by December 15, 2008 on the feasibility of establishing a provider tax on hospitals in Delaware. For the purpose of the feasibility report, hospitals shall be defined as a health care organization that has a governing body, an organized medical and professional staff, inpatient facilities and provides 24 hours a day, seven days per week either medical diagnosis, treatment and care, nursing and related services for ill and injured patients; or rehabilitation services for the rehabilitation of ill, injured or disabled patients. Hospitals are further classified as:

a. Acute Care - providing diverse inpatient services for those patients who experience physiological instability that cannot be handled safely or competently in another setting.

b. Long Term Care - providing inpatient services for those patients whose medically complex conditions require a long hospital stay with an average length of stay of greater than 25 days.

c. Psychiatric - providing inpatient services for the diagnosis and treatment of those patients with mental illness.

d.  Rehabilitation - providing intensive inpatient rehabilitative services for one or more conditions requiring rehabilitation.

(c) The report on the feasibility of a provider tax shall include but not be limited to a summary of relevant federal statutes and regulations regarding provider taxes, examples of provider taxes enacted by other states, a projected aggregate gross and net fiscal impact upon Delaware hospitals, gross and net revenue projections for the state, and draft provider tax legislation.  The tax proposal contained in this report shall dedicate the revenues derived therefrom to Medicaid and not to other state expenses, shall be based upon net rather than gross hospital revenues, shall be based upon a fixed number obtained from a publicly available document, shall be capped at a fixed number in order that the tax payments themselves are fixed, shall be contingent upon federal approval, and shall sunset at the end of three fiscal years.  The proposal shall meet all applicable federal statutes and regulations.”
