Hidalgo County created the HCHCFD on July 9, 2013.
Senate Bill 1623 allows Counties to create a Health Care Funding District for the
purpose of generating revenue from a mandatory payment rate.
The District sets the mandatory payment rate each fiscal year to be paid by the
nonpublic hospitals licensed under Chapter 241 of the Texas Health & Safety Code.
The purpose of the revenue collected is to provide the non-federal share of a Medicaid
supplemental payment program.
