Final Rule: Medicaid Disproportionate Share Hospital Allotment Methodology

Bookmark and Share

The final rule reducing Medicaid disproportionate share hospital (DSH) payments had few changes from the proposed rule. It cuts $500 million in fiscal 2014 and $600 million in fiscal 2015 allotments. The rule also defines the five factors that will be considered to generate a state-specific reduction allotment amount and establishes additional reporting requirements for the new DSH methodology. A CMS fact sheet is available.
