 19 24    The general assembly declares that it is possible
 19 25 that a few large companies may be able to control all

 19 28 participate in the food system of the future, and

 21 40    Sec. 12.  MEDICAL ASSISTANCE – SUPPLEMENTAL
 21 41 AMOUNTS.  For the fiscal year beginning July 1, 2000,
 21 42 and ending June 30, 2001, the department of human
 21 43 services shall continue the supplemental
 21 44 disproportionate share and a supplemental indirect
 21 45 medical education adjustment applicable to state-owned
 21 46 acute care hospitals with more than 500 beds and shall
 21 47 reimburse qualifying hospitals pursuant to that
 21 48 adjustment with a supplemental amount for services
 21 49 provided medical assistance recipients.  The
 21 50 adjustment shall generate supplemental payments
 22  1 intended to equal the state appropriation made to a
 22  2 qualifying hospital for treatment of indigent patients
 22  3 as provided in chapter 255.  To the extent of the
 22  4 supplemental payments, a qualifying hospital shall,
 22  5 after receipt of the funds, transfer to the department
 22  6 of human services an amount equal to the actual
 22  7 supplemental payments that were made in that month.
 22  8 The aggregate amounts for the fiscal year shall not
 22  9 exceed the state appropriation made to the qualifying
 22 10 hospital for treatment of indigent patients as
 22 11 provided in chapter 255.  The department of human
 22 12 services shall deposit these funds in the department's
 22 13 medical assistance account.  To the extent that state
 22 14 funds appropriated to a qualifying hospital for the
 22 15 treatment of indigent patients as provided in chapter
 22 16 255 have been transferred to the department of human
 22 17 services as a result of these supplemental payments
 22 18 made to the qualifying hospital, the department shall
 22 19 not, directly or indirectly, recoup the supplemental
 22 20 payments made to a qualifying hospital for any reason,
 22 21 unless an equivalent amount of the funds transferred
 22 22 to the department of human services by a qualifying
 22 23 hospital pursuant to this provision is transferred to
 22 24 the qualifying hospital by the department.
 22 25    If the state supplemental amount allotted to the
 22 26 state of Iowa for the federal fiscal year beginning
 22 27 October 1, 2000, and ending September 30, 2001,
 22 28 pursuant to section 1923(f)(3) of the federal Social
 22 29 Security Act, as amended, or pursuant to federal
 22 30 payments for indirect medical education is greater
 22 31 than the amount necessary to fund the federal share of
 22 32 the supplemental payments specified in the preceding
 22 33 paragraph, the department of human services shall
 22 34 increase the supplemental disproportionate share or
 22 35 supplemental indirect medical education adjustment by
 22 36 the lesser of the amount necessary to utilize fully
 22 37 the state supplemental amount or the amount of state
 22 38 funds appropriated to the state university of Iowa
 22 39 general education fund and allocated to the university
 22 40 for the college of medicine.  The state university of
 22 41 Iowa shall transfer from the allocation for the
 22 42 college of medicine to the department of human
 22 43 services, on a monthly basis, an amount equal to the
 22 44 additional supplemental payments made during the
 22 45 previous month pursuant to this paragraph.  A
 22 46 qualifying hospital receiving supplemental payments
 22 47 pursuant to this paragraph that are greater than the
 22 48 state appropriation made to the qualifying hospital
 22 49 for treatment of indigent patients as provided in
 22 50 chapter 255 shall be obligated as a condition of its
 23  1 participation in the medical assistance program to
 23  2 transfer to the state university of Iowa general
 23  3 education fund on a monthly basis an amount equal to
 23  4 the funds transferred by the state university of Iowa
 23  5 to the department of human services.  To the extent
 23  6 that state funds appropriated to the state university
 23  7 of Iowa and allocated to the college of medicine have
 23  8 been transferred to the department of human services
 23  9 as a result of these supplemental payments made to the
 23 10 qualifying hospital, the department shall not,
 23 11 directly or indirectly, recoup these supplemental
 23 12 payments made to a qualifying hospital for any reason,
 23 13 unless an equivalent amount of the funds transferred
 23 14 to the department of human services by the state
 23 15 university of Iowa pursuant to this paragraph is
 23 16 transferred to the qualifying hospital by the
 23 17 department.
 23 18    Continuation of the supplemental disproportionate
 23 19 share and supplemental indirect medical education
 23 20 adjustment shall preserve the funds available to the
 23 21 university hospital for medical and surgical treatment
 23 22 of indigent patients as provided in chapter 255 and to
 23 23 the state university of Iowa for educational purposes
 23 24 at the same level as provided by the state funds
 23 25 initially appropriated for that purpose.
 23 26    The department of human services shall, in any
 23 27 compilation of data or other report distributed to the
 23 28 public concerning payments to providers under the
 23 29 medical assistance program, set forth reimbursements
 23 30 to a qualifying hospital through the supplemental
 23 31 disproportionate share and supplemental indirect
 23 32 medical education adjustment as a separate item and
 23 33 shall not include such payments in the amounts
 23 34 otherwise reported as the reimbursement to a
 23 35 qualifying hospital for services to medical assistance
 23 36 recipients.
 23 37    For purposes of this section, "supplemental
 23 38 payment" means a supplemental payment amount paid for
 23 39 medical assistance to a hospital qualifying for that
 23 40 payment under this section.

 23 46 program reimbursement payable for services provided by
 23 47 the state university of Iowa hospitals and clinics.
 23 48 After payment of contract costs, the first $4,000,000
 23 49 $12,000,000 received in additional reimbursement from
 23 50 the enhanced claiming during the period beginning with
 24  1 the effective date of this Act, and ending June 30,
 24  2 2001, shall be credited to the general fund of the
 24  3 state.  The balance of the additional reimbursement
 24  4 received during the period is appropriated to the
 24  5 state board of regents for the state university of
 24  6 Iowa hospitals and clinics for other expenses
 24  7 associated with the enhanced claiming and for the
 24  8 provision of services.  The state board of regents
 24  9 shall report quarterly during the period delineated in
 24 10 this section to the department of management and the
 24 11 legislative fiscal bureau concerning the enhanced
 24 12 claiming and reimbursement that is received and
 24 13 anticipated.
 24 14    For purposes of this section, "enhanced claiming"
 24 15 does not include any process already being utilized by
 24 16 the state university of Iowa hospitals and clinics to
 24 17 identify and seek reimbursement from appropriate
 24 18 payors.  Individual patient accounts shall not be
 24 19 eligible for participation in enhanced claiming
 24 20 activities until the state university of Iowa
 24 21 hospitals and clinics certifies that its internal
 24 22 processes to identify and seek reimbursement from
 24 23 appropriate payors have been completed.  Should
 24 24 additional reimbursement from the enhanced claiming
 24 25 fail to equal the targeted amount to be credited to
 24 26 the general fund, the state university of Iowa
 24 27 hospitals and clinics shall not be held responsible
 24 28 for making up the shortfall.
 24 29    Sec. 14.  STATE UNIVERSITY OF IOWA – DEPARTMENT OF
 24 30 HUMAN SERVICES.  The department of human services

 24 37    Sec. 15.  For the fiscal year beginning July 1,
 24 38 2000, and ending June 30, 2001, the state board of
 24 39 regents may use notes, bonds, or other evidences of
 24 40 indebtedness issued under section 262.48 to finance
 24 41 projects that will result in energy cost savings in an
 24 42 amount that will cause the state board to recover the
 24 43 cost of the projects within an average of six years.
 24 44    Sec. 16.  Notwithstanding section 270.7, the
 24 45 department of revenue and finance shall pay the state
 24 46 school for the deaf and the Iowa braille and sight
 24 47 saving school the moneys collected from the counties
