More Than 300 Members of Congress Sign Bipartisan Letter Urging Delay of Medicaid Disproportionate Share Cuts

A total of 302 members, including Rep. Dusty Johnson ​of Congress signed on to a bipartisan House letter urging Congress to delay cuts to Medicaid disproportionate share (DSH) hospitals for at least two years.

“Should Congress fail to delay the cuts scheduled to begin on Oct. 1, safety net hospitals will face a financial shortfall of $4 billion in FY 2020,” they note in a letter to House leaders. “These cuts will grow to $8 billion in FY 2021. Our nation’s hospitals cannot sustain losses of this magnitude. Institutions will be forced to shutter, leaving our constituents and communities without a vital safeguard.” The bipartisan letter was led by Reps. Eliot Engel, D-N.Y., and Pete Olson, R-Texas.
