ACTION: Notice of Hearing. AGENCY: SUMMARY: This notice announces an administrative hearing to be held on July 8, 2008, at the CMS Dallas Regional Office, 1301 Young Street, Suite 833, Room 1196, Dallas, Texas 75202, to reconsider CMS’ decision to disapprove Texas SPA 07–020.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Benjamin Cohen, Presiding Officer, CMS, 2520 Lord Baltimore Drive, Suite L, Baltimore, Maryland 21244, Telephone: (410) 786–3169. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This notice announces an administrative hearing to reconsider CMS’ decision to disapprove Texas SPA 07–020 which was submitted on July 20, 2007, and disapproved on February 22, 2008. Under this SPA, the State would guarantee that, at the request of a hospital impacted as a result of a federally declared natural disaster, disproportionate share hospital (DSH) payments to that hospital would remain level from the prior year. In addition, the SPA would amend the conversion factors that expire August 31, 2007, and would update cost reporting citations that have changed due to a format change in the CMS Hospital and Hospital Health Care Complex Cost Report. The amendment was disapproved because it does not comply with the requirements of section 1902(a)(13)(A) of the Social Security Act (the Act) together with the hospital specific limits under 1923(g)(1) of the Act. The hearing will involve the following issues: • Compliance with section 1923(g) of the Act. Whether the proposed State plan language concerning DSH payments assures compliance with hospital specific payment limits for current year DSH payments, and sufficient documentation of such compliance; • Applicability of section 1923(e)(2) of the Act providing an exception to the section 1923(g) limits.
