Uncompensated Care Payments


Every private hospital that participates in the waiver must execute an affiliation agreement with the governmental entity that provides the Intergovernmental Transfer (IGT) for any type of payment (transition, Uncompensated Care (UC) or Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment (DSRIP)). Hospitals receiving transition payments already have the necessary affiliation agreements on file. Read more about overview(.pdf)
