DHCS Issues Fee-For-Service Cycle 4 Supplemental Payment for 2017-19 Hospital Fee Program
For CFOs

On Dec. 16, the Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) will issue the fourth supplemental fee-for-service (FFS) payment related to the 2017-19 Hospital Fee Program, representing the approximate 30% shortfall that occurred with the FFS Cycle 4 payment in April 2018.

DHCS historically has issued FFS supplemental payments based on the accumulation of multiple FFS cycles. To expedite payments to hospitals, DHCS has agreed to begin issuing FFS supplemental payments on a quarterly basis for cycles where the initial supplemental payment did not account for 100% of the modeled amount. Included below are the estimated payment dates for the remaining FFS supplemental payments.
