Advocacy Issue: Medicaid DSH Payment Cuts
The Medicaid Disproportionate Share Hospital (DSH) program provides essential financial assistance to hospitals that care for our nation’s most vulnerable populations — children, impoverished, disabled and elderly. Medicaid DSH payment reductions are scheduled to be implemented on Oct. 1, 2023 when $8 billion in reductions take effect.
Congress should provide relief from the Medicaid DSH cuts in fiscal year (FY) 2024 given the vital need for the program.
