ABSTRACT
Using survey data, we examined Medicaid supplemental payments (SPs), including disproportionate-share hospital (DSH) and upper payment limit (UPL) payments in 2005 and changes in these payments between 2001 and 2005. We found that states increased their use of general funds in financing of DSH payments while expanding the size and scope of other SPs considerably. Although the federal government has made some headway in reforming state Medicaid financing, our findings suggest that more work remains.
