DHCS Receives More Than 95% of Cycle 4 Hospital Fee Payments

The Department of Health Care Services has received 95.4 percent of fees from hospitals for cycle 4 of the 30-month hospital fee program. As a result, hospitals can expect to receive 95.4 percent of the projected cycle 4 supplemental Medi-Cal fee-for-service payments Nov. 20. The California Health Foundation & Trust (CHFT) will send invoices Nov. 15 to hospitals with a net benefit for the amount of the pledge contribution due for this fourth cycle. Instructions for wiring payments will be included. Pledge contributions should be made to CHFT no later than Nov. 23 to ensure CHFT can make grants in a timely manner.
