Engel introduces bill that would repeal Medicaid DSH cuts

Congressman Engel led the effort in the House of Representatives to repeal the Medicaid DSH Cuts, which would hurt safety-net hospitals that serve the poor and the uninsured. “’Medicaid is a critical lifeline for nearly a third of New Yorkers. Just as important are the safety-net hospitals that deliver quality care and serve them,’ Engel said in a statement earlier this month. ‘These hospitals already operate on slim margins. If Medicaid DSH cuts were implemented, it would have a devastating impact on these critical facilities, potentially leading many to close their doors.’”
