On March 16, the Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) issued the fifth supplemental fee-for-service (FFS) payment related to the 2017-19 Hospital Fee Program, representing the approximate 25% shortfall that occurred with the FFS Cycle 5 payment in May 2018. In recognition of the challenges hospitals are currently experiencing with the coronavirus pandemic, DHCS has agreed to move up the sixth FFS reconciliation payment  — originally scheduled for May 18  — to the end of March, processing through EFT on April 6.

This will be the final FFS reconciliation payment for the 2017-19 Hospital Fee Program.
