Providers and Government Entities:
Attached to this email you will find a workbook titled “DY2 Uncompensated Care Final Payment Amounts” that contains two tabs. The tab titled “IGT Commitment Amount” contains all of the amounts submitted by governmental entities in the IGT commitment forms, which have been reduced to the final IGT amounts based on the haircut applied by HHSC. These amounts are by affiliation, so there are multiple affiliations for many providers that comprise their final IGT amount, depending on how many government entities a provider has to fund their IGT. The other tab is titled “HHSC UC Database” and lists the final UC amounts by provider, also showing the methodology HHSC used when applying the haircut. This spreadsheet also gives a breakdown of the various numbers that comprise each providers final payment amount (HSL, Schedules 1 and 2, adjustments, etc.).
Government Entities need to reference column L (Final IGT Amount or Annual IGT Recoupment) in the “IGT Commitment Amount” tab and column AR (Final Waiver Year 2 IGT Amount or Annual IGT Recoupment) in the “HHSC UC Database” tab for their final IGT amounts.
HHSC is asking that all Government Entities submit their IGT’s into TexNet no later than Tuesday, June 3rd, and when the IGT is entered, select a settlement date of Wednesday, June 4th. The settlement date is the day that the comptroller will draw the funds from the entities account, and it is very important to select the correct settlement date when entering the IGT transaction into TexNet.
While Government Entities that are IGT’ing for multiple providers may submit one lump sum IGT for everyone, HHSC asks that if you are submitting IGT for multiple providers to complete the attached allocation form. This form is very simple to populate using the “IGT Commitment Amount” tab, and will give the HHSC Rate Analysis Department an allocation of the lump sum IGT so we will know how much of the lump sum to apply to each provider.
Once you have submitted your IGT into TexNet you will receive a receipt that HHSC refers to as the Trace Sheet. HHSC asks that ALL IGT’ing entities send their Trace Sheets and Allocation Forms to the UC Tools mailbox at firstname.lastname@example.org . If you have any questions or require any assistance, please send a message to the UC Tools mailbox, and thank you for all of your help and dedication in making the final DY2 UC payments.
