On the Hill: 51 Senators Call for Action to Stop Medicaid DSH Cuts

A bipartisan group of 51 senators this week urged Senate leaders to stop an $8 billion cut on Oct. 1 to Medicaid disproportionate share hospital (DSH) funding.

The call to action came in a letter to Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.). America’s Essential Hospitals and its members played a key role in encouraging senators to sign the letter.

The Senate letter, led by Sens. Bob Casey (D-Pa.) and James Lankford (R-Okla.), follows a similar communication to House leaders in May. Both letters detailed how Medicaid DSH sustains hospitals that provide safety net care and chronicle previous congressional action to avert cuts.
