DOH has released guidance with respect to the treatment of additional funds received in December for purposes of the Health Facilities Cash Receipts Assessment (CRA). Members should adjust their December 2017 CRA filings accordingly. 

Please note the DOH announcement below: 

“With regards to the Nursing Home Quality Pool payments and the 1% supplemental funds received in December of 2018: 

  • The Nursing Home Quality Pool is assessable.
  • With regards to the 1% NH supplemental funds, while the Department has not made an official decision as to whether these payments are assessable for the HFCAP program at this time; we have been advising facilities to proceed as though they are not subject to the assessment.”
