2019 RFA Goes into Effect on November 1

The 2019 acute care hospital Request for Application (RFA) – the main MassHealth (Medicaid) contract between the state and hospitals – was released last week and will take effect November 1. Last year’s RFA was extended one month as the state worked on 2019 changes related to outpatient reimbursement, readmissions, and the hospital pay-for-performance program.
