“Thank you, guys; you did such a good job. This is really awesome. Thank you very much. It’s great. And I learned a lot.”
BESLER’s Disproportionate Share (DSH) service optimizes a hospital’s Medicaid eligible days by capturing and validating every patient day eligible to be included in the Medicaid fraction of the Disproportionate Share calculation with the purpose of providing a clean and accurate log that identifies every possible account.
Why Choose BESLER?
- BESLER leverages proprietary technology and experienced consultants who prepare, review, and work closely with your team to prepare a clean and accurate log of eligible Medicaid days on your cost report that is free of common errors, free of compliance issues, and preserves your appeal rights.
- When BESLER prepares Medicare DSH, we process 100% of the patient population, validating Medicaid eligibility against the home state and against surrounding states when applicable.
- A thorough analysis of ineligible patients will be conducted to ensure that each patients’ information was correct, confirming they are ineligible for Medicaid.
- The remaining list of patients who have a high propensity for eligibility will be sent back to the state for a response.
- We review issues and additional data provided to determine proper treatment and the decisions made based on a risk/reward analysis and review.
- A second complete run of the data against the state’s database will be conducted one year later.
- All states have retroactive eligibility, and CMS allows you to file an amended cost report, guaranteeing acceptance if DSH is the only change—allowing you to maximize your reimbursement on the amended cost report.
- The BESLER team will answer all questions and provide additional supporting documentation during any subsequent audits aided by our expertise, experience, and understanding of typical audit-driven issues.
Not all DSH preparation services are equal. BESLER’s system makes getting your hospital its pro rata share of Medicare DSH funding easier
