What You Need to Know About CMS’s Latest Rulemakings Affecting Hospital Medicare Reimbursement, Including IPPS, OPPS and the Part C Proposed Rule

King & Spalding will host a roundtable to discuss the highlights of the IPPS Final Rule for FY 2021, the OPPS Proposed Rule for CY 2021, and CMS’s Proposed Rule to count Part C Days in the Medicare Fraction for cost reporting periods preceding October 1, 2013. This discussion will include the following:

  • CMS’s new requirement that hospitals report their median payer-specific negotiated charges for Medicare Advantage organizations, and how CMS will use this data to set MS-DRG relative weights starting in FY 2024,
  • New requirements for claiming reimbursement for bad debt from Medicare, which of those requirements will apply retroactively, and which proposals were dropped from the Final Rule,
  • CMS’s proposal to include Part C Days in the calculation of the SSI fraction for cost reporting periods preceding October 1, 2013, and
  • Various highlights from the OPPS proposed rule for CY 2021, including CMS’s proposal to eliminate the inpatient-only list.
