Attention Kansas CAH’s – Upcoming DSH Surveys

JULIANNE KIPPLE, HEALTHCARE shareholder
For all Kansas Critical Access Hospitals (CAH), the SFY 2019 Disproportionate Share (DSH) and Uncompensated Care (UCC) payment survey is expected to be sent by the end of May. If a CAH has not completed this survey in the past, this is an opportunity for hospitals to receive a DSH payment for serving a disproportionate share of Medicaid or uninsured patients. There are a few qualifications, such as serving a certain percentage of Medicaid patients and also having two physicians with staff privileges at the hospital to perform non-emergency obstetric procedures.

If you have not reviewed whether or not you would qualify in the last few years, we would highly encourage hospitals to review the DSH survey and qualifications. If you complete a DSH survey, we would also recommend looking at the various reports, including the uninsured data, to make sure you are claiming all valid uncompensated care costs.

If you have questions about the survey or the qualification requirements, please contact us.
