With the passage of HB 3076 in 2019, the Oregon State Legislature created a community benefit minimum spending floor program for Oregon’s 60 acute care hospitals and their affiliated clinics. The bill allows hospitals to choose the grouping the spending floor is applied to, including but not limited to:
- Each individual hospital and all the hospital’s nonprofit affiliated clinics
- A hospital and a group of the hospital’s nonprofit affiliated clinics
- All the hospitals that are under common ownership and control and all of the hospitals’ nonprofit affiliated clinics
The Oregon Health Authority is required to apply the spending floor every two years, and calculates the spending floor for each year, two years at a time. The first spending floors apply to hospitals’ fiscal years 2022 and 2023. For more information how the spending floor is calculated, please see the FY22-23 Spending Floor Announcement.
For 30 days after the Oregon Health Authority notifies a hospital or health system of its proposed community benefit minimum spending floor, members of the public may provide
comments. To see the spending floors open for public comment, see below. The FY22-23 Public Comment Schedule lists the expected comment period for each hospital in Oregon.
For 30 days after the Oregon Health Authority notifies a hospital or health system of its proposed community benefit minimum spending floor, the hospital or health system may formally request a modification to the spending floor. For more information on the process of requesting a minimum spending floor modification, please see the Spending Floor Modification Guidance Document.
