The Kansas Department of Health and Environment is proposing reforms to the Medicaid Disproportionate Share Hospital (DSH) program to provide fair and equitable distribution of DSH funds. DSH changes will be effective in the 2020 DSH year. In preparation of these changes, BKD will review the basic timeline of the Kansas Medicaid DSH Survey process and how to complete the required survey exhibits and review any changes to the State Fiscal Year (SFY) 2020 DSH Survey.
Upon completion of this program, participants will be able to:
- Explain the Kansas Medicaid DSH Survey process and eligibility requirements
- Discuss how to appropriately gather requested data and complete requested DSH exhibits
- Describe the DSH examination process
- Identify changes to the SFY 2020 Kansas Medicaid DSH Survey
