Association Thanks House for DSH Relief in Continuing Resolution


Statement attributable to:
Bruce Siegel, MD, MPH
President and CEO

WASHINGTON — The nation’s more than 300 essential hospitals thank House leaders and members for voting to avert the imminent and deeply damaging $4 billion cut to Medicaid disproportionate share hospital (DSH) payments.

With the reprieve the continuing resolution would afford, Congress and essential hospitals can continue working toward sustainable support for hospitals that commit to serving disadvantaged people and communities where homelessness, hunger, and other social and economic factors threaten health.

The House has demonstrated strong bipartisan support for the idea that DSH cuts cannot be justified in the face of a growing numbers of uninsured and persistently high uncompensated care costs. Democrats and Republicans on the House Committee on Energy and Commerce have approved repealing $16 billion of the DSH cuts over the next three years, and we remain strongly behind this measure as a critical first step toward long-term relief.

America’s Essential Hospitals calls on senators to join their House colleagues in delaying DSH cuts as part of the continuing resolution and working with essential hospitals to ensure access to high-quality care for all people.
