DSH Audits and Experience
Medicaid Disproportionate Share Hospital (DSH) payments are intended to compensate hospitals that serve a large number of Medicaid and uninsured individuals. These payments are vital to a hospital’s financial wellbeing and have become increasingly more complex throughout the years. Our team’s in-depth understanding and thorough experience with DSH payments and audits make us the most well-equipped to assist clients in this regard. We can assist in the DSH audit preparation process to ensure you are retaining payments and the necessary and updated documents for successful audits and long-term financial accuracy and stability.
