53 Hospitals Complete SFY 2019 DSH Applications

November 7, 2018

With WSHA’s help, 53 hospitals successfully completed applications making them eligible for consideration for federally matched Medicaid Disproportional Share Hospital (DSH) funding for state fiscal year 2019. Qualifying hospitals that serve disproportionately high proportions of Medicaid and uninsured patients can receive a share of $8.5 million in Low Income DSH and $3.8 million in Small Rural DSH funding. Hospitals must reapply each year for DSH through a detailed and complex process. WSHA worked closely with HCA staff and with hospitals to facilitate communication and ensure successful submission of any needed information. Final determination of eligibility and payment will be determined by HCA in early 2019. (Andrew Busz, andrewb@wsha.org).
