Disproportionate Share Hospital (DSH) Program
The Disproportionate Share Hospital (DSH) program is a federal program that works to increase health care access for the poor. Hospitals that treat a "disproportionate" number of Medicaid and other indigent patients qualify for DSH payments through the Medicaid program based on the hospitals' estimated uncompensated cost of services to the uninsured.
