This post has been archived and contains information that may be out of date.

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.
