NAUH Seeks Congress’s Help in Fiscal Cliff Talks

In a message delivered yesterday (November 15), the National Association of Urban Hospitals (NAUH) asked every member of Congress to urge their caucus leaders to reject any further cuts in Medicare and Medicaid when they meet with the White House to negotiate a solution to the fiscal cliff crisis.

The message cited the significant Medicare cuts hospitals are already experiencing and the major cuts from sequestration and the FY 2014 cut in Medicare disproportionate share (Medicare DSH) payments and warned that any further Medicare or Medicaid cuts would jeopardize the ability of many private, non-profit urban safety-net hospitals to continue serving their communities.
