Children’s Hospitals Graduate Medical Education (CHGME) Payment Program

This notice announces the opportunity to apply for funding under the Children’s Hospitals Graduate Medical Education (CHGME) Payment Program.

The purpose of the CHGME Payment Program is to compensate for the disparity in the level of Federal GME funding for freestanding children’s

credit:


teaching hospitals versus other types of teaching hospitals.

Federal funding for graduate medical education (GME) is primarily provided by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and goes to full service teaching hospitals that serve primarily adult patients.

Freestanding children’s hospitals receive little to no GME funding from Medicare because children’s hospitals have a low Medicare caseload.

The CHGME Payment Program is administered by the Bureau of Health Workforce (BHW), Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), U. S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
