Hospital Directed Payment Program

Under the West Virginia Medicaid managed care program, the Bureau for Medical Services (BMS) operates two DPPs – one aimed at hospitals and academic physicians and another aimed at non-academic physicians working for hospitals. The DPPs provide qualifying hospitals with additional dollars for services including inpatient admissions, outpatient claims, and physician visits. Payments are based upon Medicaid managed care utilization of services at each hospital.
