Policy Analysis of Medicaid Disproportionate Share Hospital Proposals

KNG Health assisted the Medicaid and CHIP Payment and Access Commission (MACPAC) in its development of policy recommendations to Congress regarding the Medicaid Disproportionate Share (DSH) policy.  Specifically, KNG Health, as a subcontractor, developed a model of federal Medicaid DSH allotment and payment reductions under the policy approach developed by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).  We estimated the financial impact at the state and hospital levels and conducted impact analysis of alternative Medicaid DSH policies that MACPAC was considering.
