Review of Disproportionate Share Hospital Payments Made by Pennsylvania to State-Operated Institutions for Mental Diseases

The State did not comply with Federal and State requirements when it calculated the hospital-specific limits for the eight State-operated Institutions for Mental Diseases for State FY 2006-07. The State incorrectly included in its calculations some patient days for individuals who were inmates being held involuntarily by the State's criminal justice system. However, no disproportionate share hospital payments exceeded the hospital-specific limit.
