CMS issues Medicaid DSH proposed rule
from AHA News Now
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has issued a proposed rule defining the term "uninsured" for purposes of calculating Medicaid's hospital-specific Disproportionate Share Hospital payment limit. The rule would allow hospitals to count as uncompensated care the cost of services to individuals whose health coverage excludes the medically necessary service provided, and the cost of services for individuals that have exhausted their insurance benefits or have reached lifetime insurance limits for those benefits or services. The proposed rule was published in the Jan. 18 Federal Register, with comments accepted through Feb. 17.
