To prepare hospitals that receive Medicaid Disproportionate Share Hospital (DSH) funding for the audit of SFY 2018 DSH payments, the state’s consultant, Myers and Stauffer (M&S) provided a provider training webcast on April 6. M&S is contracted by the Health Care Authority to perform the federally required annual DSH audits for Washington state and performs the audits for several other states.
During the provider training session, M&S staff went through the audit survey process and timelines in detail. M&S has uploaded the survey and hospitals’ MMIS data to the web portal, with the survey due to be returned by hospitals to Myers and Stauffer by May 7.
Information from the webcast is available at the links below.
