AN ACT in relation to diagnosis-related  groups  and  service  intensity
  weights  for total hip joint replacement and total knee joint replace-
  ment inpatient cases for a general hospital

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1.  Notwithstanding  any  contrary  provision of law or regu-
lation, for rate periods beginning January 1, 2010 and  ending  December
31,  2013,  the commissioner of health may determine that the diagnosis-
related groups  and  service  intensity  weights  for  total  hip  joint
replacement  and  total  knee  joint  replacement  inpatient cases for a
general hospital shall  be  the  diagnosis-related  groups  and  service
intensity weights in effect on December 31, 2007 pursuant to subdivision
3 of section 2807-c of the public health law. The commissioner of health
may make such a determination if the majority of inpatient surgery cases
for  the general hospital are orthopedic cases, the general hospital has
developed a center of excellence in orthopedic surgery and sports  medi-
cine,  and the general hospital incurred a significant reduction in non-
governmental reimbursement for such cases beginning in 2008 as a  result
of  revisions  to  the  service  intensity weights for these cases. Such
determination shall not affect the diagnosis-related groups  or  service
intensity weights for any other cases or for any other general hospital.
  S 2. This act shall take effect immediately and, with the exception of
rates of payment made by state governmental agencies, shall be deemed to
have been in full force and effect on and after January 1, 2010.


 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
