Disproportionate Share Hospital (DSH) Payment Trends in Medicaid Expansion vs. Non-Expansion States
Publication Date: Aug 01, 2018
Summary

The August edition quantifies Medicaid DSH payments, showing the progression of DSH spending in each state from 2013-2017.  The key takeaway is that Medicaid DSH has not dropped at all across the expansion states since 2013, even though this was intended to occur as one of the mechanisms to help offset the Federal costs of Medicaid expansion.
