Abstract

This report describes how Tenet has turned the Medi-Cal Disproportionate Share Hospital (DSH) program, which was created to keep safety net hospitals alive, into a corporate profit center. First, it explains how Tenet grew its Medi-Cal DSH hospital business and how much it earns from this program. Next, it examines the patients in Tenet DSH hospitals and the care they receive. Finally, it suggests questions that merit further inquiry from California lawmakers and health advocates.
