Medicaid DSH Advocacy Update

Date: Thursday, August 17, 2017

Time: 2:00 PM EDT

Barring congressional intervention, statutory cuts to Medicaid disproportionate share hospital (DSH) state allotments will start Oct. 1. During this webinar, America’s Essential Hospitals staff described a recently proposed federal methodology to carry out those cuts and explain how it might impact essential hospitals. This webinar also provided an in-depth look at the association’s legislative advocacy to combat the DSH reductions and an update on pending litigation on the calculation of DSH limits.
