Hospital Care Assurance Program – 2001 Program Year

The Hospital Care Assurance Program (HCAP) is Ohio's version of the federally required Disproportionate Share Hospital program. HCAP compensates hospitals who provide a disproportionate share of care to indigent patients (Medicaid consumers, people below poverty, and people without health insurance).

The assessment and model calculations for the FFY 2001 Hospital Care Assurance Program have been completed. The data for the model is taken from the Interim Settled Cost Reports for SFY 2000. For most providers this would be the year ending 12/31/1999 or 6/30/2000. 

The FFY 2001 HCAP distributes $543.03 million to providers. Of that amount, $222.34 million was collected in the form of assessments to providers, with the balance of the funds provided by the Federal Government. The assessment and payment amounts for FFY 2001 may be downloaded by clicking on the link below.

DISCLAIMER: The Department of Medicaid has taken appropriate measures to ensure that the file you are getting matches the actual assessments and payments for this year's program. However, it is possible that variations may occur in the process of converting the file between spreadsheet applications. By downloading this file you are accepting it as is and agree that the Department is not responsible for any errors or omissions. In the event that there are differences between this file and the actual or payments, the version of the model maintained by the department shall supercede this file.

Each year, in an effort to ensure that valid data is used, the Department conducts data reviews on a select number of hospitals. The review process requires that selected providers send to the Department the required backup documentation to support the amounts shown on Schedule F of the Hospital Cost Report-JFS 02930. The results of the data reviews are compiled into the HCAP Final Summary Report.
