Item 8.01 Other Events.

Nevada State Directed Payment Program (“SDP”):

As previously reported, in February, 2023, the Nevada Division of Health Care Financing and Policy (“DHCFP”) outlined a new provider fee on private hospitals located in Nevada that would effectively capture new Medicaid federal share for certain categories of services eligible for the new payment program.

In late December, 2023, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (“CMS”) approved the Medicaid managed care component of the Nevada SDP program, with an effective date of January 1, 2024. Based upon financial data provided by the DHCFP for our facilities located in Nevada, we estimate that our aggregate net reimbursements pursuant to the Medicaid managed care component of the Nevada SDP program (net of related provider taxes) will approximate $140 million during the year ended December 31, 2024. Payments made pursuant to this component of the Nevada SDP program, which requires annual approval by CMS, are subject to reconciliation by DHCFP based on actual Medicaid managed care utilization during 2024. There can be no assurance that the Medicaid managed care component of the Nevada SDP will continue for any period after December 31, 2024, or that it will not be modified.

Including the impact of the Medicaid fee for service upper payment limit component of the Nevada SDP program (estimated net reimbursements of $18 million attributable to our Nevada facilities during the year ended December 31, 2024), which was approved by CMS in November and December of 2023, we estimate that our aggregate net reimbursements pursuant to both components of the Nevada SDP program (net of related provider taxes) will approximate $158 million during the year ended December 31, 2024.

You should carefully review the information contained in our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended September 30, 2023 and should particularly consider any risk factors that we set forth in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2022, and in other reports or documents that we file from time to time with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). In this Report, we state our beliefs of future events and of our future financial performance. Our filings with the SEC contain “forward-looking statements” that reflect our current estimates, expectations and projections about our future results, performance, prospects and opportunities. Forward-looking statements include, among other things, the information concerning our possible future results of operations, business and growth strategies, financing plans, expectations that regulatory developments or other matters will or will not have a material adverse effect on our business or financial condition, our competitive position and the effects of competition, the projected growth of the industry in which we operate, and the benefits and synergies to be obtained from our completed and any future acquisitions, and statements of our goals and objectives, and other similar expressions concerning matters that are not historical facts. Words such as “may,” “will,” “should,” “could,” “would,” “predicts,” “potential,” “continue,” “expects,” “anticipates,” “future,” “intends,” “plans,” “believes,” “estimates,” “appears,” “projects” and similar expressions, as well as statements in future tense, identify forward-looking statements. In evaluating those statements, you should specifically consider various factors, including the risks related to healthcare industry trends and those set forth herein in Item 1A. Risk Factors and Item 7. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations-Forward Looking Statements and Risk Factors in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2022 and in Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations-Forward Looking Statements and Risk Factors, as included in our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended September 30, 2023. Those factors may cause our actual results to differ materially from any of our forward-looking statements.
