Materials Available from March 7 Medicaid DSH Webinar

Posted on March 09, 2018

Myers and Stauffer LLC, Michigan’s contractor for the federally mandated Medicaid disproportionate share hospital (DSH) audits, hosted an educational webinar March 7 to provide an overview for the fiscal year (FY) 2015 audits that are currently in process. Representatives from Myers and Stauffer, the Medical Services Administration (MSA) and the MHA contributed to the session. A recording of the webinar and the materials are available online.

All hospitals that received payments from any of the Medicaid DSH pools for FY 2015 are required to participate in the audits. Consistent with past years, the audit calculates whether hospitals have received Medicaid DSH payments in excess of their DSH limit and are, therefore, subject to DSH payment recoveries.

Myers and Stauffer distributed the FY 2015 survey files and data request to Michigan hospitals via email Feb. 9. It is anticipated that the hospital-specific Medicaid fee-for-service claims data files will be available to hospitals through Myer and Stauffer’s secure website during the week of March 12. The completed surveys and patient level detail are due to Myers and Stauffer by March 30. The contractor is required to submit a draft report to the MSA by Sept. 30, and the MSA must send the final report to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services by Dec. 31.

Members with questions should contact Vickie Kunz at the MHA.
