This presentation reviews a package of three draft recommendations related to the structure of pending reductions in Medicaid disproportionate share hospital (DSH) allotments and a draft chapter that describes the Commission’s analyses and decision making process. The proposed recommendations were approved 16–1 and include:
- phasing in reductions more gradually over a longer period of time;
- applying reductions to unspent DSH funding first; and,
- distributing reductions in a way that gradually improves the relationship between DSH allotments and the number of non-elderly, low-income individuals in a state.
The downloadable slide presentation reflects the text of the recommendation as discussed at this session.
