Consolidated Fiscal Reporting Submission Requirements
SHARE

Overview

OASAS requires that all service providers receiving state aid funding for one (1) or more substance use disorder and/or problem gambling programs file a Consolidated Fiscal Report (CFR). Additionally, most service providers receiving Medicaid revenue in one (1) or more OASAS-certified substance use disorder programs are required to submit a year-end CFR. Submission requirements vary for funded/not funded providers, not-for-profit service providers, proprietary (for-profit) service providers, and those service providers operated by a unit of local government. 

Provider Types Affected
  • Article 28 Certified Hospital Facilities (both public and private)
  • Article 28 Certified Freestanding facilities and Diagnostic and Treatment Centers, both public and private)
  • Freestanding Not-For-Profit Entities
  • Freestanding For-Profit Entities
  • Local Government Operated Entities including Counties, Cities, Towns, Villages, etc.

 

Funded Programs- Funded programs are programs receiving net deficit funding (State Aid) from OASAS in support of substance use disorder and/or problem gambling services. State Aid can be provided through a direct contract with OASAS or through a local contract with a county.

Unfunded Programs- Unfunded programs are programs that receive no net deficit funding (State Aid) from OASAS for substance use disorder and/or problem gambling services. Financial support for unfunded programs comes completely from Medicaid, client fees, health insurance carriers, and other third-party payers.
