Disproportionate Share Hospital

The Disproportionate Share Hospital Unit (DSH) is a special reimbursement program which is aimed at making up the short fall for hospitals when care is provided to a patient who has little or no funds to cover the costs of care or who is a Medi-Cal beneficiary.  A hospital which provides a certain amount of uncompensated care is designated as a disproportionate share hospital and may qualify for additional funds.
