NAUH Asks Budget Conferees Not to Cut Medicare, Medicaid

As the congressional budget conference committee begins work, the National Association of Urban Hospitals (NAUH) has asked the committee’s members to protect urban safety-net hospitals from further Medicare and Medicaid cuts.

NAUH LogoIn a message sent to all of the conferees, NAUH notes the numerous cuts these hospitals have only recently incurred ­– Medicare disproportionate share (Medicare DSH) and Medicaid DSH cuts, Medicare bad debt reimbursement reductions, and others – and noted that any further cuts could jeopardize jobs and access to care in communities served by urban safety-net hospitals across the country.
