The status of the Disproportionate Share Hospital (DSH) surveys for respective State Fiscal Years (SFY) is now available. Several facilities are listed for the 2014 reviews and are requested to submit their information as soon as possible if they have not.
Final settlements and resolution of appeals of prior SFYs are currently underway in abeyance pending the result of ongoing litigation at the federal level regarding payments from Third-party Payors.
The Department of Medicaid has confirmed that the ten percent holdback of the November 2013 Medicaid Disproportionate Share Hospital (DSH) payments were mailed September 22.
The final share factor used to distribute the balance of DSH funds for the November 2013 distribution is the same share factor that will be used by Medicaid when making the DSH payments for November 2014 and November 2015. Since the Federal funding has not changed for the next two years, and the share factor is constant, the Medicaid DSH payments for the next two years should be essentially the same as the payment for November 2013.
