Provides that for the development of rates for new rate years, the Department shall: (i) take into account emerging experience in the development of the annual MCO base rates; (ii) meet with MCOs, no less than 6 months prior to submission of the new rates to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, to review data and the Department's written draft assumptions to be used in the development of base rates for the following year; (iii) provide the MCOs with draft capitated base rates no less than 2 months prior to the submission of the new rates to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services; and (iv) provide the MCOs with a final actuarial report regarding the final base rates for the following year prior to the submission of final rates to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Sets forth certain actions the Department must perform when developing rates that reflect policy changes, including: (a) providing advance notice to MCOs of any significant policy change no later than 90 days prior to the effective date of the policy change; and (b) meeting with the MCOs regarding the initial data collection needed to establish base rates for the policy change. Sets forth certain actions the Department must perform when developing rates for retroactive policy or rate changes, including meet with the MCOs regarding the initial data collection needed to establish rates for the policy change and meeting with MCOs to review data and the Department's written draft assumptions to be used in the development of rates for the following year.
