Analysis of the Joint Distribution of Disproportionate Share Hospital Payments. Data


We calculated indicators of financial pressure for FY1997-FY1999 using the Medicare HCRIS public use files for PPS 13-16 as of June 30, 2001. The HCRIS cost report information is based on the hospital's fiscal year. For example, the PPS-13 files have cost report data for hospital cost reporting periods beginning on or after October 1, 1996 and before October 1, 1997 (i.e., cost reporting periods beginning in FY 1997). Table 1 summarizes the status of the cost reports we use in our analysis.
