Eligible Hospital Volume Calculator

The Department has developed a Hospital Discharge Calculators to assist providers in estimating their Medical Assistance (MA) patient volumes for the purpose of understanding potential eligibility for the EHR incentive program. The results of the calculator are not the Department's determination of a provider's MA patient volume or a determination of provider eligibility for the incentive program. All providers must still apply for the program in the Medical Assistance Provider Incentive Repository (MAPIR). The Department will determine provider eligibility following the receipt and review of the provider's program application.

If you have additional questions about this calculation, please contact us at RA-mahealthit@pa.gov.

If applying as an Acute Care hosptial, you must determine the eligibility status for a continuous 90 day period counting discharges from your hopital. The date range must be any representative continuous 90 day period in the Previous Hospital Fiscal Year preceding the payment year OR the previous 12 months prior to the attestation date.

Enter the beginning date of a continuous 90 day period (MM/DD/YYYY):
(Note: Children's Hospitals are exempt from the discharge eligibility requirment.)
