Community Health Center Payments and Rates
Health Safety Net Community Health Center (CHC) rates implement the requirements of Chapter 58 that specify that CHC payments from the Health Safety Net Trust Fund be based on the Medicare Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) patient visit rates. Reimbursement for other services is based largely on MassHealth fee schedules, as stated in regulation 114.6 CMR 14.00 "Health Safety Net Payments and Funding" (see: http://www.mass.gov/chia/regs ). The mechanism for payment will be the monthly submission of the Payment Reporting Form (PRF) via CHIA-INET , CHIA's Web-based transaction system.
