BACKGROUND:
The County of San Mateo through San Mateo Medical Center (SMMC) has contracted with San Mateo Health Commission dba Health Plan of San Mateo (HPSM) since January 1994. There are several agreements currently in place with HPSM to provide specific and varied services for Medicare and Medi-Cal patients.

DISCUSSION:
As a result of changing payment methodologies enacted by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), HPSM is implementing a new CMS Patient Driven Payment Model (PDPM) to reimburse SMMC for skilled nursing services for both of their Medicare and Medi-Cal lines of business. In conjunction with this change, HPSM desires to consolidate its separate Medicare and Medi-Cal provider agreements into a combined agreement to ensure consistency of operational and regulatory requirements. This agreement is coming to the Board late due to prolonged negotiations.

The agreement and resolution have been reviewed and approved by County Counsel as to form.

The resolution contains the County's standard provisions allowing amendment of the County fiscal obligations by a maximum of $25,000 (in aggregate).

It is anticipated that this agreement will increase the skilled nursing facility Medi-Cal per diem rate to $725.
