Proposed Project: Reconciliation Tool for the Teaching Health Center Graduate Medical Education Program—[NEW]
The Teaching Health Center Graduate Medical Education (THCGME) program, Section 340H of the Public Health Service (PHS) Act, was established by Section 5508 of Public Law 111-148. The program supports training for primary care residents (including residents in family medicine, internal medicine, pediatrics, internal medicine-pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology, psychiatry, general dentistry, pediatric dentistry, and geriatrics) in community-based ambulatory patient care settings. The statute provides that eligible teaching health centers receive payments for both direct and indirect costs associated with training residents in community-based ambulatory patient care centers. Direct payments are designed to compensate eligible teaching health centers for those expenses directly associated with resident training, while indirect payments are intended to compensate for the additional costs of training residents in such programs. Payments are made at the beginning of the funding cycle; however, the statute provides for a reconciliation process, through which overpayments may be recouped and underpayments may be adjusted at the end of the fiscal year. This data Start Printed Page 30949collection instrument will gather information relating to the numbers of residents in THCGME training programs in order to reconcile payments for both direct and indirect costs.
