Update on Hospital Supplemental Payment Analyses

During the September 2023 public meeting, the Commission discussed a long-term work plan for examining all types of Medicaid payments to hospitals, including disproportionate share hospital (DSH) payments, non-DSH supplemental payments, and managed care directed payments.

This session provided an overview on staff findings from a preliminary review of supplemental payment targeting methods and the targeting of non-DSH supplemental payments using new provider-level data that states are required to report under the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021 (CAA, P.L. 116-220). This presentation provided the Commissioners with updated information about the targeting of non-DSH supplemental payments, policy principles for discussion, and future work.
