You have a voice in urging the state to renew the current Medicaid rate for rural Sole Community Hospitals

Olympic Medical Center is reliant on adequate government reimbursement to maintain its ability to provide access to services Clallam County needs, as 82% of our patients are covered by government programs. OMC experienced a $1.7 million cut in reimbursement for Medicare (federal) in 2019 (and will increase to $3.4 million in 2020), and the current state (Medicaid) reimbursement rate has become a lifeline. Remember, even with the current budget proviso, state reimbursement only covers 70% of the cost to provide care.

We are asking our state legislators to renew the rural Sole Community Hospital budget proviso established in the 2018 session. In 2018, the legislature recognized Medicaid reimbursement for large rural hospitals such as Olympic Medical Center and Grays Harbor Community Hospital was inadequate. The proviso, and the 2014 rural Sole Community Hospital legislation to which it applies, works to help ensure we can continue to serve our community.
