Data Required by SB 523 is Due Today

SB 523 (Hernandez) is the so called "ambulance QAF bill" and it is supposed to increase Medi-Cal payments to emergency medical transport providers - next year.

This California law requires ambulance providers to submit data to the Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) TODAY, November 15, 2017. Failure to submit the data by the deadline could result in a $100/day penalty, which is assessed every day the data is late.

If your company is unable to meet today's data reporting requirements, you are encouraged to contact DHCS via their email in-box, explain your situation, and request an extension of time.  We believe it better to communicate with them now and explain your particular situation rather than wait and be silent.

DHCS has established a website with compliance instructions and more information.

Additionally, the CAA will be holding a workshop on EMS Economics in San Francisco, Dec 7, from 8:00 to 4:00.  We confirmed last night that a representative from DHCS will be participating in the workshop to provide information about SB 523 compliance and answer questions.  Register today.
