Key measures supported by the Healthcare Association of Hawaii were approved during the Hawaii legislative session that ended this week, including the financial sustainability programs for the hospitals and the skilled nursing facilities.
In a difficult budget year during which tax revenues were coming in lower than expected, an inflationary adjustment for Medicaid patients needing nursing home care was maintained and approved as part of the state’s budget. In addition, discussion will continue via a task force on a measure to provide additional money to skilled nursing facilities caring for medically-complex patients.
A significant number of bills that HAH worked on for members were also favorably resolved.
