There is a HARP funding opportunity through HHSC. To participate, complete and return this SAMPLE Letter of Intent – HARP (Public) and return to FD_LFM@hhs.texas.gov by 12 PM on Friday, August 19, 2022.
The Hospital Augmented Reimbursement Program (HARP) is a statewide supplemental program providing Medicaid payments to hospitals for inpatient and outpatient services that serve Texas Medicaid fee-for-service (FFS) patients. The program serves as a financial transition for providers historically participating in the Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment program. HARP will provide additional funding to hospitals to assist in offsetting the cost hospitals incur while providing Medicaid services. CMS has approved the HARP program for non-state public hospitals only at this point.
HHSC has calculated an estimated fully funded amount along with the required IGT, attached. We are also attaching the letter of intent which requires completion. You can use the attached funding estimate file to insert the amount of IGT your facility intends to fund.
