“Sec. 1107. Federal determinations; suspension and termination of assessment.

“(a) If the federal government determines that an assessment imposed on a hospital pursuant to this act does not satisfy the requirements for federal financial participation set forth in section 1903(w) of the Social Security Act, approved July 30, 1965 (70 Stat. 349; 42 U.S.C. § 1396b(w)), the determination shall not affect the validity, amount, applicable rate, or any other terms of an assessment on other hospitals imposed by this act.

“(b) If the federal government determines that an exclusion for hospitals specified under this act would prevent an assessment imposed by this act from qualifying as a broad-based health care related tax, as that term is defined in section 1903(w)(3)(B) of the Social Security Act, approved July 30, 1965 (79 Stat. 349; 42 U.S.C. § 1396b(w)(3)(B)), the exclusion shall not be made.”
