Hospitals receiving funds from DMH via direct and/or indirect contracts are required to complete an abbreviated CFR which records with reasonable accuracy, discrete DMH costs.

The Institutional Cost Report (ICR) and the Medicaid Stepdown are not required to be submitted to DMH by the hospitals.

The following procedures are to be used exclusively by hospitals in filling out Schedule DMH-2.

The CFR is to be completed by hospitals using this manual as a guide.

In calculating expected administrative and overhead expenses, use the most recent available allocation percentages from the stepdown derived from the last Institutional Cost Report (ICR) submitted to the Office of Health Systems Management. Follow this procedure unless there is reason to believe that there will be a change in the percentage that will be allocated to Mental Hygiene programs.

If ICR stepdown percentages are not used, please so indicate and explain the methodology used to calculate the percentages.

The logical integrity between the schedules in the CFR must be maintained as prescribed throughout the manual.

Hospitals who received State Aid based on a line item expense reimbursement methodology will continue to receive State Aid in this manner (based upon the procedures outlined above).

Hospitals who previously received State Aid based on approved Medicaid rates rather than on a line item expense reimbursement methodology will continue to receive State Aid based upon their approved Medicaid rates.
