Disproportionate Share Hospital Program (DSH) is a program of hospital care for Kentucky's indigent citizenry provided by Kentucky hospitals participating in the Kentucky Medicaid Program.
Prior to billing a patient and prior to submitting the cost of the hospital service to Medicaid as uncompensated, a hospital uses the DSH-001- indigent care eligibility form to assess a patient's financial situation to determine if the patient meets the DSH guidelines.
Patient eligibility requirements:
- The patient must be a Kentucky resident.
- Resources (financial and other) belonging to the patient and the patient's family are taken into consideration during the determination.
- The patient cannot have any other medical insurance coverage, including private insurance, any type of government-funded coverage, KCHIP, or be eligible for Medicaid.
