2020 WSHA Legislative Summary now available

July 23, 2020

WSHA’s summary of the 2020 legislative session is now available. As COVID-19 dominated the end of the session, WSHA successfully advocated for $19.5 million allocated to the Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS) to facilitate discharge of patients to long-term care settings and $2 million in emergency funds for rural hospitals. WSHA also secured funding for two pilot programs for partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient services for youth on Medicaid, as well as legislation on telemedicine payment parity, Medicaid MCO payment for substitute providers, and prior authorization. Complete details are in the 2020 WSHA Legislative Summary & Policy Preview! (Emily Pate, emilyp@wsha.org).
