New York State Health Care Reform Act (HCRA)
HCRA is a major component of New York State's Health Care financing laws which governs hospital reimbursement methodologies and targets funding for a multitude of health care initiatives. The law also requires that certain third-party payors and providers of health care services participate in the funding of these initiatives through the submission of authorized surcharges and assessments.
IMPORTANT NOTE: In an effort to disseminate information in a more timely manner, the HCRA program will, whenever possible, communicate information to Payors, TPAs, and Providers via email. It is very important to keep your email addresses current. If you do not have a current email address on file with us or if you need to edit your email address, this information can be completed through the "Maintain Email Addresses" option available on the Office of Pool Administration (OPA) website.
Note: As of February 1, 2014, all questions or correspondence should be directed to email@example.com
