Hi fellow MA nurses,
I've done a google search without luck- does anyone know how to find out which hospitals in MA are considered "disproportionate share hospitals?"
This is defined by the government as: "A nonprofit hospital that: 1) has a disproportionately large share of low-income patients; and 2) receives (a) an augmented payment from the States under Medicaid; or (b) a payment adjustment from Medicare."
Nurses who work at such facilities receive preference for the Nursing Education Loan Repayment Program. Thanks for any info.
