NAUH Urges House to Delay Medicaid DSH Cuts

The House of Representatives should delay the proposed implementation of major cuts in Medicaid disproportionate share (Medicaid DSH) allotments to the states.

The reduction of Medicaid DSH allotments, mandated by the Affordable Care Act, has already been delayed twice by Congress, and now, a bipartisan letter is being circulated among House members asking House Speaker Paul Ryan and House minority leader Nancy Pelosi to move legislation to delay the Medicaid DSH cuts again for another two years.

In its message, NAUH has asked House members to sign onto the letter, which is being circulated by Representatives Eliot Engel (D-NY), John Culberson (R-TX), and Steve Palazzo (R-MS).

All private, non-profit urban safety-net hospitals receive Medicaid DSH payments and all consider them a vital source of revenue to help them serve the low-income residents of the communities in which they are located.
