Volume Decrease Adjustment
Congress enacted special legislation to provide payments to Sole Community Hospitals (SCH) and Medicare Dependent Hospitals (MDH) if, due to circumstances beyond its control, such hospitals experience a decrease of more than five percent in its total number of discharges. These payments are deemed necessary to provide small rural hospitals the means to remain viable for the communities they serve.
