The Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) will issue reconciliation checks, dated Dec. 10 and 16, to hospitals that receive the Private Hospital Supplemental Fund (PHSF) state fiscal year 2020-21 Round A payments.
DHCS estimates these reconciliation payments will total approximately $6.8 million. The reconciliation payments are for supplemental payments made for the dates of service periods from Jul. 1 to Dec. 30, 2020, and are the result of a 6.2% increase in the federal matching rate authorized under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act.
These one-time reconciliation payments will be made with the traditional state fiscal year 2020-21 Round A distributions for hospitals. Invoices will be noted: “PHSF FFCRA” for the reconciliation payment, and “PHSF 16A” for the fiscal year 2020-21 Round A payment.
