D.C. Circuit Affirms Denial Of Medicaid Reimbursement To Baptist Memorial Hospital

WASHINGTON, D.C. - The District of Columbia Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals on May 14 affirmed a trial court order granting summary judgment to U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius, upholding her decision to deny reimbursement to Baptist Memorial Hospital for its disproportionate share hospital (DSH) payment for costs attributed to inpatient days for patients covered under a state "expansion" Medicaid program, explaining that the hospital's appeal of the reimbursement denial was too vague (Baptist Memorial Hospital Inc. v. Kathleen Sebelius, Secretary of Health & Human Services, et al.,  No. 11-5112, D.C. Cir.; 2012 U.S. App. LEXIS 9723).
