Medicaid DSH allotments to states for FY 2014 announced

March 7, 2014

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Feb. 27 announced the preliminary federal allotments to states for Medicaid Disproportionate Share (DSH) hospitals in fiscal year (FY) 2014. The funding does not contain the DSH reductions for 2014 under the Affordable Care Act, which were eliminated by the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2013, as advocated by the AHA.

The legislation also delayed the FY 2015 DSH reductions until FY 2016 while extending the DSH cuts by one year, to FY 2023.
