Electronic Reporting Obligations

Payors that have elected to pay the Public Goods Pool directly, third party administrators that have elected to participate in the Pool on behalf of their electing clients, and HCRA designated providers are required to file their Public Goods Pool reports electronically.  In order to file electronically, you must establish an "Electronic Filing Account", and have an assigned secure password with the Pool Administrator.  Refer to "Frequently Asked Questions", to learn more about obtaining an electronic filing password.  To file a Public Goods Pool report electronically, refer to "HCRA Electronic Reporting".

Section 2807-j(5)(a)(iii)(D) of the Public Health Law requires the New York State Department of Health to publish the Federal Employee Identification Number (FEIN) of all electing payors and providers on a secure website.  Every HCRA designated provider of services and electing payor will be required to provide the Department, or its designee, its FEIN for posting on the secured HCRA website.  The law also requires the website to include the date that designated providers and electing payors were first posted to the Department's website.  All payors, third party administrators and designated HCRA providers who have established an electronic filing account with a secure password and user id can access FEIN and posting information from this website.  Electing payor information is available by selecting "Elector List" on the left-side navigation button.  HCRA designated Provider information is available by selecting "Provider List" on the left-side navigation bar.

Attention All Payors, TPAs & Providers: You are strongly encouraged to submit payments owed (if applicable) through an electronic transfer of funds.  Automated Clearing House (ACH) transfers are the most cost effective.  This is a secure method of sending your payment.  For more information, contact the Office of Pool Administration at 315-671-3800.

Elector Information

To be included on the list, an organization must have elected in conformance with HCRA provisions and Department requirements.  All appropriate election forms should be filed with the Office of Pool Administration.  It is the responsibility of the electing payor or third party administrator to inform the Office of Pool Administration of any change in information that differs from the original election application.

Provider Information

The lists of New York State health care providers, which offer services subject to HCRA surcharges is subdivided by provider type as follows: general hospitals, comprehensive diagnostic and treatment centers, diagnostic and treatment centers that provide ambulatory surgical services, and clinical laboratories. Also included are extension clinics affiliated with hospitals and comprehensive diagnostic and treatment centers. Providers are listed alphabetically within provider type.

The HCRA provider information is posted as a courtesy and should not be deemed to be all-inclusive in determining HCRA obligations. While every effort is made to ensure that the information is accurate and up-to-date, it does not guarantee this to be the case. Entities that utilize this list are encouraged to contact providers directly if they have questions.

The Office of Pool Administration assumes no responsibility for any error, omissions or other discrepancies regarding the provider list.

All HCRA designated hospitals and comprehensive diagnostic and treatment centers are required, as part of their monthly Public Goods reporting, to review and submit to the Office of Pool Administration their extension clinic information, or to submit that there are no affiliated clinics.  To review your Extension Clinic List, click on "Provider Options" and login using your Public Goods User ID and Password.  You may make changes as often as necessary, however the list must be reviewed and submitted at least once every thirty (30) days prior to entering the financial portion of your Public Goods Pool report. When the information is submitted it will be reflected on the Provider List updated monthly.
