Hospitals are well aware of the status of proposals relative to attempts to resolve the MET (Medicaid Enhancement Tax) issue but as ASC administrators, physicians and owners, the NHASA feels you should know as well.
There are three current amended proposals with regards to the MET (Medicaid Enhancement Tax) floating but the one that is of particular concern would be the amendment offered by Representative Hess (attached) that seeks to expand the base of the MET and would include ASC’s.
The situation is extremely fluid with a lot of moving parts and final resolution will require cooperation of all stakeholders.
Please contact your Representatives and voice your concern over Representative Hess’ proposal to include Ambulatory Surgery Centers, who already as small business’ pay a Business Enterprise Tax.

There is strength in numbers!
