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 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.
