For the 2011-12 fiscal year of the 30-month hospital fee program

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has approved the managed care rates for the 2011-2012 fiscal year of the 30-month hospital fee program. DHCS sent invoices to hospitals on April 22 for the fee required to draw down the federal match, and the invoiced amounts are due May 15. The Medi-Cal managed care plans will receive supplemental capitation payments by June 1; therefore, hospitals will receive supplemental payments by June 30. CHA will work to create hospital-specific payment schedules and will notify members when they’re completed. The CMS approvals are attached.
