The Health Care Authority has begun the application process for the SFY 2018 Disproportionate Share Hospital (DSH) program for hospitals other than those participating in the Certified Public Expenditures program. Hospitals applying for DSH funding must submit an initial application to HCA by August 1, 2017 to continue to be considered for 2018 DSH funds. HCA will notify hospitals submitting incomplete applications and hospitals must submit any remaining information by October 31, 2017 to be considered for 2018 DSH funding.
The SFY 2018 DSH application and other DSH information are available here. The DSH application and supporting documentation should be sent electronically to Mary O’Hare at HCA at HCADSHAdmin@hca.wa.gov. Mary can be contacted at 360-725-9820 or email@example.com.
