NAUH Urges “Supercommittee” Members to Reject Damaging Medicare, Medicaid Proposals

NAUH wrote to the congressional Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction to urge members to reject any Medicare and Medicaid deficit reduction proposals that come before the committee that would jeopardize the ability of private, non-profit urban safety-net hospitals to continue serving their communities as effectively as they have for so many years.  In particular, NAUH urged committee members to reject proposals that would reduce or eliminate Medicare bad debt reimbursement; reduce Medicare indirect medical education (IME) and direct graduate medical education (DGME) payments; reduce Medicaid eligibility, benefits, or payments to providers; or reduce Medicare disproportionate share (Medicare DSH) and Medicaid disproportionate share (Medicaid DSH) payments.
