Overview of Medicaid Disproportionate Share Hospital Allotment Reductions
CMS released a proposed rule requiring aggregate reductions to state Medicaid disproportionate share hospital (DSH) allotments. The rule, required by the Affordable Care Act (ACA), sets forth aggregate reductions to state Medicaid DSH allotments annually from FY14 through FY20. The proposed rule also delineates the DSH health reform methodology (DHRM) to implement the annual reductions for FY14 and FY15, and proposes to add additional DSH reporting requirements for use in implementing the DHRM.
