This announcement solicits applications for the Children’s Hospitals Graduate Medical Education (CHGME) Payment Program. The purpose of the CHGME Payment Program is to compensate for the disparity in the level of Federal GME funding for freestanding children’s hospitals, which are hospitals that have their own Medicare Provider numbers issued by CMS.
There are two categories of children’s hospitals that may be eligible for CHGME payments in FY 2018, depending on the funding appropriated to the program – “Currently Eligible Hospitals” or “Newly Qualified Hospitals.”
Hospitals applying for the CHGME program may qualify as a “Newly Qualified Hospital” or as a “Currently Eligible Hospital” according to the requirements posted in HHS legislation.
Currently Eligible Hospitals include children’s hospitals that meet the original eligibility requirements for CHGME payments that were established prior to the Children’s Hospital GME Support Reauthorization Act of 2013.
