Additional Supplemental Medi-Cal Payment Will Be Made From 2009-10 Hospital Fee Program

Due to the ongoing efforts by the Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) to collect past due fees from the 2009-10 hospital fee program, a sixth fee-for-service payment will be made to hospitals Aug. 15.

CHA expects the payment to total nearly $12.6 million, with $9.5 million for inpatient payments and $3.1 million for outpatient payments. The payments will be reflected on hospitals’ Medi-Cal remittance advice reports with code 711.

California Health Foundation & Trust invoices will be issued Aug. 29 in connection with this supplemental payment.

With this sixth round of funding, DHCS has now collected 99.52 percent of the total fees from the 2009-10 hospital fee program. Contact: Matt Absher, (916) 552-7669,
