The Hospital Care Assurance Program (HCAP) is Ohio's version of the federally required Disproportionate Share Hospital program. HCAP compensates hospitals that 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 2006 Hospital Care Assurance Program have been completed. The data for the model is taken from interim settled Medicaid Cost Reports for SFY 2005. For most providers this would be the year ending 12/31/2004 or 6/30/2005.
The FFY 2006 HCAP program distributes $545.6 million to providers. Of that amount, $219.2 million was collected in the form of assessments to providers, with the balance of the funds provided by the Federal Government.
