2015 DSH audit requests sent

Posted on: 4/18/18


Hospitals that received Oklahoma Medicaid Disproportionate Share Hospital (DSH) payments for the 2015 program year (Oct. 1, 2014 - Sep. 30, 2015) are being audited, as required by federal rules. Myers and Stauffer LC sent audit requests to these hospitals last week. Surveys and supporting documentation are to be sent to Myers and Stauffer by May 11, 2018.

In a DSH Training 2018 Update presentation, the auditors clarify some issues related to labor/delivery days and the handling of Medicaid eligible patients with private insurance. They also list common issues noted in the prior year DSH audit. The training is in the form of a presentation deck; no in-person DSH audit training was held this year.

The Oklahoma Health Care Authority’s “DSH Forms and Reports” page includes:
  • OK DSH Training 2018 Update,
  • Oklahoma DSH SPY2015 Examination Notification Letter,
  • Listing of the 2015 DSH Allocation.
For questions on the 2015 DSH examination, ask Myers and Stauffer using the contact information provided in their letter to hospitals or in the training presentation. (Rick Snyder)
