Invoices for the 2019-21 Hospital Fee Program, fee-for-service cycle 4, were mailed on March 20; payments are due Oct. 14. The Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) prefers fee payments to be made via electronic funds transfer.
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 a financial hardship. CHA encourages those at risk of not paying their invoices in full by Oct. 14 to notify DHCS in advance of the due date and let them know about any financial hardship. To notify DHCS directly, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
