The Hospital Payment Advisory Committee functions as a sub-committee of the Medical Care Advisory Committee and advises MCAC and the Health and Human Services Commission about hospital reimbursement methodologies for inpatient hospital prospective payment and on adjustments for disproportionate share hospitals. The committee advises to ensure reasonable, adequate, and equitable payments to hospital providers and to address the essential role of rural hospitals.
