Safety Net Care Pool Payments
Funding through the Safety Net Care Pool (SNCP) was open to all Arizona hospitals through 12/31/13, including rural hospitals, safety net hospitals and hospitals receiving Disproportionate Share Hospital (DSH) payments. Phoenix Children’s Hospital received an extension for the program through 12/31/17. The nonfederal match must be provided by a political subdivision. This program gives counties, cities, Arizona public universities or special healthcare districts the ability to directly support hospital systems in their communities.
This program was approved under the State’s Section 1115 Research and Demonstration Waiver.
Scheduled Payment Dates
Safety Net Care Pool payments are made throughout the year, depending upon the timing of Intergovernmental agreements with local partners.
