2019-21 Hospital Fee Program Invoices Due April 20

For CFOs

Invoices for the 2019-21 Hospital Fee Program, fee-for-service cycle 10 payments are due April 20.  

The Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) prefers fee payments to be made via electronic funds transfer. As of July 27, 2021, the Hospital Quality Assurance Fee (HQAF) Unit has an updated wire account and associated bank for HQAF wire payments. If paying via wire, please refer to the Union Bank wire instructions previously sent. 

As a reminder, it is critical that all hospitals pay their invoices in full and on time. However, due to impacts from the COVID-19 crisis, CHA has heard from many hospitals that are experiencing financial hardship. CHA encourages those at risk of not paying their invoices in full by April 20 to notify DHCS in advance of the due date  about any financial hardship. To notify DHCS directly, email [email protected]
