NAUH Endorses CMS Redefinition of “Uninsured Care”

NAUH has conveyed to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) its support for a proposed regulation that changes how the agency defines “uninsured care” for the purpose of calculating hospitals’ Medicaid disproportionate share (Medicaid DSH) payments.

The refinement in the definition extends “uninsured care” to include services not covered by insured patients’ health plans.  NAUH has long advocated this change because urban safety-net hospitals care for many patients who are under-insured and whose plans do not always cover the services they need.
