Hospitals should have already received a notice indicating the expected amount of State Fiscal Year (SFY) 2020 Disproportionate Share Hospital (DSH) distribution. The allotment for the pools assume full funding by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) — it anticipates that the cuts scheduled for this year will be permanently delayed until a future period.If the cuts are not delayed, the total funding will be reduced by approximately 37%.
For the acute care pool, no monies were transferred from the University pool this year (which results in a reduction in the pool compared to last year).
Disbursements are expected on November 27, 2019.
