On behalf of New Hampshire hospitals, we are pleased to have reached a final agreement with the State regarding the funding and support of the State’s Medicaid Disproportionate Share Hospital (DSH) program.  This agreement ensures that the State will continue to fund critical reimbursements to hospitals for the uncompensated care they provide to low income and vulnerable patients, now and in the future.

Working in partnership, this agreement demonstrates the hospitals’ willingness to move forward and create financial stability for the hospitals, the Medicaid program, the State budget, and most importantly, preserve access to care for our patients who are served by their community hospitals. 

We thank Governor Sununu, his administration and key members of the legislature, including Senate President Chuck Morse and Senate Majority Leader Jeb Bradley for their support and partnership in finalizing the agreement, as well as their commitment to ensuring long-term sustainability for our state, our health care system and the patients we serve.
