CHA Continues Support for Medicaid DSH 

What’s happening: Current funding legislation supported by CHA extends the delay in the implementation of pending Medicaid disproportionate share hospital cuts until March 8.   

What else to know: On Jan. 18, the House and Senate passed legislation, known as a continuing resolution, to fund the federal government though March 1 for certain departments, and March 8 for others. 

Congress must come to agreement again on legislation to fund the federal government to avoid a partial government shutdown and the implementation of those Medicaid cuts.
