OMH on Revised Year End Reconciliation Process 

Revised close-out language is now posted on OMHs website (link below).  Both the State Aid Letter and Direct Contract language can be found at that link in the 2019-20 ad 2020-21 fiscal years.  The revised Language is at the beginning of the Desk Audit Control Points.

OASAS on Revised Year-End Reconciliation Process for Funded Services to Address the Impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic on Provider Operations:
Text (below) is here:

“OASAS will reconcile State Aid in aggregate over the two fiscal periods from July 1, 2019 through June 30, 2021 or January 1, 2020 through December 31, 2021. This combined close-out is intended to facilitate stable operations for providers and assist in addressing anticipated significant variations in revenue and expenses due to and during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The two-year closeout will be based on the reconciliation of the completed DMH-2 claims for each fiscal period, July 1, 2019-June 30, 2020 and July 1, 2020-June 30, 2021 or January 1, 2020-December 31, 2020 and January 1, 2021-December 31, 2021, and aggregating the total deficit for the two-year period in relation to the approved State aid for the two years. All unspent State Aid identified as a result of the closeout will be recouped in accordance with the OASAS’ established reconciliation and recovery process.

OASAS certified and funded providers are still required to submit their annual Consolidated Fiscal Report (CFR) on the specified due dates. Please refer to recently updated CFR guidance on how to report the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) revenue.
