What are examples of what would be appropriate adjustments to the Upper Payment Limit (UPL) in step 9 (Adjustments to the UPL and UPL Gap Calculation) (field 408) of the template?

Variable 408 (Adjustment to the UPL Gap) is intended to allow states to report adjustments to their UPL gap, to the extent that these adjustments are not accounted for in other variables. Here, states could report broad-based increases or reductions in payment, such as a Medicaid volume adjustment for managed care expansion. The source of values input into variable 408 may differ by state. Whenever a state reports data in variable 408 it must include a comprehensive note describing the adjustment.
