 Industry News and Updates

Are you unsure of what decreased uncompensated care costs mean to your entity?
Are you holding reserves for future re-distributions of pool payments or Upper Payment Limits?
If so we can help~
As the State works to collect the data necessary to calculate the 2014 Step II DSH pool payments and settle the 2014 cost reports, hospitals are left to account for estimates for over three years of potential redistributions and settlements.
As Uncompensated Care Costs decline redistributions of DSH payments are expected to increase. Also, as other supplemental pool payments increase and patients shift from Title XIX to HMP hospitals are left to account for multiple open settlement years.
If you have concerns of the impacts these items will have to your entity please reach out to us today.
