CMS Releases FY 2016 Medicaid DSH Allotments

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) on Oct. 25 published a notice in the Federal Register on preliminary federal disproportionate share hospital (DSH) allotments for fiscal year (FY) 2016.

The notice contains state-specific, final FY 2014 DSH allotments that do not include reductions required by the Affordable Care Act. America’s Essential Hospitals has won legislative delays of those cuts, until FY 2018, by educating Congress about the vital importance of DSH.

In the notice, the FY 2016 preliminary state allotments were calculated by increasing the amount of the state’s FY 2015 DSH allotment by the percentage change in the Consumer Price Index.
