Although Worksheet S-10 is currently a hot topic in the provider reimbursement community, it’s important hospitals don’t lose sight of Medicare Disproportionate Share Hospital (DSH) program benefits. While overall hospital reimbursement is declining, Medicare DSH is growing—providing entities with reimbursement opportunities based on how well they report their DSH data.

Medicare DSH is a $4 billion program that is a significant revenue stream for many hospitals. Medicare DSH qualification drives participation in other reimbursement programs as well, including the $8.35 billion Federal Uncompensated Care pool and the 340B Drug Discount Program.

Join us for a webcast addressing how your hospital can refine its Medicare DSH calculation protocols. We’ll cover the Medicare DSH calculation background, the anatomy of completing the calculation for the Medicare cost report, as well as the following key topics:

  • Changes to the DSH calculation since the Affordable Care Act and new DSH items that have surfaced in recent rounds of rule making
  • The ideal Medicare DSH process, including considerations and tips for each component
  • The latest developments in audits, appeals, and litigation
  • Best practices and next steps for your cost report DSH submissions
