30-Month Hospital Fee Payments Due to DHCS Nov. 1

CHA reminds hospitals that the cycle nine fee-for-service payments for the 30-month hospital fee program are due to the California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) by Friday, Nov. 1. To ensure the continued success of the program, it is crucial that DHCS collect the hospital fees to claim the federal matching funds. If the full fee payments are not made to DHCS by Nov. 1, reduced supplemental payments will be made to hospitals (the next supplemental fee-for-service payment to hospitals will be made Nov. 19). DHCS sent invoices to hospitals for cycle nine on Oct. 9, and instructions for wiring funds to DHCS are attached.
