Dear Government Entities & Performing Providers:
Please carefully review this message in its entirety making note of the information provided which pertains to the DY4 Delivery System Reform Incentive Payments (DSRIP). Government entities that owe monitoring will need to submit two separate transactions for monitoring and DSRIP projects. Failure to do so may result in a delayed payment for the providers.
Attached are the following files: DSRIP Notification-[April DY4 Reporting Affiliation Summary] and [April DY4 Reporting IGT Summary] spreadsheets. These spreadsheets include DY4 DSRIP payments for DY4 Reporting (April), DY2 Carryforward Reporting, DY3 Carryforward Reporting, and DSRIP Monitoring.
The April DY4 Reporting Affiliation Summary spreadsheet has separate tabs for each Regional Healthcare Partnership (RHP) and contains the Intergovernmental Transfer (IGT) needed, by affiliation, for DY 4 DSRIP payments for DY 4 Reporting (April), DY2 Carryforward Reporting, and DY 3 Carryforward Reporting.
The April DY4 Reporting IGT Summary spreadsheet has separate tabs for each RHP and contains the total IGT needed by IGT Entity Name for the DY 4 DSRIP payments for DY 4 Reporting (April), DY2 Carryforward Reporting, DY3 Carryforward Reporting, and DSRIP Monitoring.
**Please note that this is the final opportunity to IGT for DY2 DSRIP payments**
The Transformation Waiver Team will be emailing providers information regarding how much will be paid by project. Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) Rate Analysis is unable to answer questions regarding this information.
HHSC requires that two separate transactions be submitted into TexNet. One for the IGT due for DSRIP payment, which should be placed in the DSRIP bucket and the other for DSRIP Monitoring, which should be placed in the DSRIP Audit Cost bucket. Failure to submit two separate transactions may result in a delayed payment for the providers that an IGT Entity is funding as additional steps are required to move the funds to the correct Funding Bucket. If the full DSRIP Monitoring amount is not received in the DSRIP Audit Cost bucket, HHSC will reduce the IGT available for DY 4 DSRIP by the amount due for the DSRIP monitoring. Since this requires additional manual work, payment to the IGT Entity’s affiliated providers may be delayed.
IGT Entities may choose to IGT less than the required amount; however, all affiliated providers and projects will be paid proportionately. IGT may not be directed towards specific providers, projects or metrics.
A screen shot/.pdf of the confirmation/trace sheet or email of the confirmation number if the TexNet is submitted over the phone is required and must be emailed to Rate_Analysis_DSRIP_Payments@hhsc.state.tx.us. We are requesting that all government entities enter their IGT transactions into TexNet no later than July 7th with a Settlement Date of July 8th. No IGT’s submitted after July 8th will be accepted.
HHSC Accounting will request the Comptroller to issue payments according to the below estimated schedule:
July 7, 2015: Last Date for Public Entities to enter TexNet and submit Trace Numbers
July 8, 2015: TexNet Sweeps (Settlement Date of funds)
July 21, 2015: Payment issue date for Top 20 Entities for DY4 payments (Transferring Hospitals “Big 6” and Remaining entities up to 20) ** We will not know who the other 14 entities are until the payment is processed**
July 31, 2015: Payment issue date for remaining DSRIP Providers for DY4 and all providers for DY3 and DY2 payments
