Health Facility Cash Assessment Program (HFCAP)

HFCAP requires New York State designated providers to pay an assessment on cash operating receipts on a monthly basis under the Health Facility Cash Receipts Assessment Program pursuant to Chapter 1 of the Laws of 2002 as amended by various subsequent period Chapter Laws. This assessment was enacted as part of our State Budget process to close unavoidable gaps in the State spending plan. The assessment includes Article 28 Residential Health Care Facilities, Article 28 General Hospitals, Article 36 Long Term Home Health Care Programs, Article 36 Certified Home Health Agencies and Personal Care Providers that possess a Title XIX (i.e. Medicaid) contract with a Local Social Services District for the delivery of personal care services pursuant to Section 367-i of the Social Services Law.

Attention All Providers:

You are strongly encouraged to submit payments owed (if applicable) through an electronic transfer of funds. Automated Clearing House (ACH) transfers are the most cost effective. This is a secure method of sending your payment. For additional information on this method of payment, please call the Office of Pool Administration at (315) 671-3800.
