Disproportionate Share Hospital Program | Norton Healthcare Louisville, Ky.

Disproportionate Share Hospital Program

The Disproportionate Share Hospital Program (DSH) is another program that Norton Healthcare participates in to assist with your medical bills.

The DSH is administered by the Commonwealth of Kentucky, and so Kentucky sets DSH income and resource guidelines. To apply for DSH financial assistance, submit a completed and signed application along with the required supporting documentation. Because the Commonwealth of Kentucky requires a physical signature, the application cannot be completed online. You must print and mail the completed application along with your supporting documentation.

For more information about the DSH program and to read eligibility requirements, go to CHFS.KY.gov
