Most DSH hospitals will see reductions in their disproportionate share and uncompensated care (UC) payments in the post-ACA environment ~ Robert Gricius, NAVEOS® CEO

In the October 1st hfm article, NAVEOS® CEO Robert Gricius states most DSH hospitals will see reductions in their disproportionate share and uncompensated care (UC) payments in the post-ACA environment. He advises how hospitals entitled to these payments should take steps to mitigate the impact of these declines.

The article goes into detail on the three (3) below steps a DSH hospital can take to receive the DSH payment they are entitled:

1. Move from episodic to continuous management of Medicaid-eligible days

2. Institute an automated subsystem for tracking changes in eligibility among the hospital’s patients for aid through Medicaid, Supplemental Security Income, or other sources of government assistance

3. Transition to using Worksheet S-10 as the basis for distribution of the UC payment
