Description:
As required by Special Terms and Conditions (STCs) items 178-180 of California’s 1115 Waiver Renewal, Medi-Cal 2020, Blue Shield of California Foundation, on behalf of DHCS, contracted with Navigant to produce the first of two reports that review uncompensated care in California. The first report submitted to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) on May 15 focused on the level of uncompensated care at the 21 Designated Public Hospitals in California. The objective of the first report was to support the determination of the appropriate level of Uncompensated Care Pool funding in years two through five of the demonstration for the Global Payment Program. The report is available on the DHCS website: http://www.dhcs.ca.gov/provgovpart/Documents/Waiver%20Renewal/CA_UCP_Report_Final.pdf The webinar: http://www.dhcs.ca.gov/provgovpart/Pages/UncompensatedCareReport.aspx
