Understanding the Disproportionate Share Hospital (DSH) Program
The Disproportionate Share Hospital (DSH) program provides adjustment payments to help hospitals that serve a significantly greater share of low-income patients. Specifically, individual states receive an annual DSH allotment to cover the costs of DSH hospitals that provide care to low-income self-pay patients not covered by Medicaid, Medicare or other health insurance programs.
What is the benefit to you?
DSH payments provide financial help which can help you to improve and expand services even with the Affordable Care Act (ACA) reforms. You are also serving more vulnerable individuals and providing a wonderful community outreach.
