RAP Educational Call (May 2019)
Time: 3:00-4:00 PM Eastern (60 minutes)
Format: Educational Call
On May 1st, please join us for a hot-off-the-press discussion of the major reimbursement proposals announced by CMS in its 2020 Inpatient Prospective Payment System (IPPS) Proposed Rule, which is expected to be displayed in mid-to-late April. As in past years, the IPPS Proposed Rule is sure to contain many proposals that are of inherent importance to the provider community. Indeed, although IPPS is the reimbursement framework for hospital inpatient services, it is closely watched by all types of health care providers and suppliers, even those that are not paid under the IPPS. CMS’s proposals are likely to range from updates to existing policies -- governing, e.g., DSH, UCC, and pay-for-performance programs -- to the announcements of new potential policies and initiatives. Understanding CMS’s vision unveiled in the proposed rule is essential both for budgetary planning and for meaningfully participating in the rulemaking process itself through the possible submission of comments.
