One-Year Extension for Supplemental Payments from Proposition 56 Tobacco Tax Funds Health Plan of San Joaquin (HPSJ) has been briefing their providers about the latest details related to Proposition 56. The Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) proposal for a one-year extension to the supplemental payments for certain physician services using Proposition 56 Tobacco Tax Funds has been approved for the 2018-19 State Fiscal Year. The supplemental payments are fixed amounts to be paid per claim. Preventative codes have been added and the rates for most of the existing codes under Prop 56 have been increased. Managed Care Plans (MCP) are not expected to receive the additional funding for several months. However, Health Plan of San Joaquin (HPSJ) will start paying the updated supplemental amounts soon. Once this process begins, HPSJ providers will start receiving the additional amounts through the regular reimbursement process.
