  • Amendments

  • The FY 2005 IPPS final rule amended the DSH regulations by eliminating the requirement that Part A inpatient hospital days must be covered in order for such days to be included in the SSI fraction [69 Fed. Reg. at 49246 (amending 42 C.F.R. §412.106(b)(2)(1)]. See also, Id. at 49098-99 (discussing the removal of the term "covered" from §412.106(b)(2)(i), with respect to the days of a patient who was both entitled to "Medicare" and eligible for "Medicaid" (dual eligible patient), but whose Part A inpatient hospital benefits were exhausted).

  • The FY 2005 amendment to the DSH regulation was effective for cost reports with patient discharges on or after October 1, 2004 (Id. at 48916, 49099).
