Why this Matters:
The plaintiffs argue that the methodology used to calculate Medicare Disproportionate Share Hospital supplemental payment adjustments in states that refused to expand Medicaid violates the Administrative Procedure Act and the Fifth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. The methodology directly affects billions of dollars in payments from the federal government to health care providers and could influence a state’s decision to expand its Medicaid program.
The federal government’s ability to calculate new adjustments to Disproportionate Share Hospital payments could affect the broader payment landscape and state choices related to Medicaid expansion.
