101 CMR 304.05 - Adjustment to Ensure Title XIX Access or Quality

A community health center may request an adjustment of rates if it can demonstrate that access to service delivery is threatened. In order to qualify, the community health center must obtain certification from EOHHS that, without an increase in rates, access to services to MassHealth members will be jeopardized or that the quality of service will fall below levels acceptable to EOHHS and required by Title XIX. If EOHHS makes such a certification, the community health center may submit an application for a rate adjustment. The community health center's application must include a copy of EOHHS certification, the number of clients in need of the particular service, the number of visits required, evidence of the direct relationship between services, and the cost of providing care and the minimal additional costs to adequately provide the services. EOHHS will review and act on a request for a change in rates within 60 days of the receipt of a completed application.
