    5         (1) The agency shall develop a methodology and request a
    6  waiver that ensures the availability of intergovernmental
    7  transfers and certified public expenditures in the Medicaid
    8  managed care program to support providers that have historically
    9  served Medicaid recipients. Such providers include, but are not
   10  limited to, safety net providers, trauma hospitals, children’s
   11  hospitals, statutory teaching hospitals, and medical and
   12  osteopathic physicians employed by or under contract with a
   13  medical school in this state. The agency may develop a
   14  supplemental capitation rate, risk pool, or incentive payment
   15  for plans that contract with these providers. A plan is eligible
   16  for a supplemental payment only if there are sufficient
   17  intergovernmental transfers or certified public expenditures
   18  available from allowable sources.
