2014 IPPS Final Rule- WEBINAR

On August 2, 2013, CMS issued the federal fiscal year 2014 Inpatient Hospital PPS (“IPPS”) Final Rule. This Final Rule, which goes into effect on October 1, 2013, the start of federal fiscal year 2013, makes significant changes that effect every hospital paid under IPPS. This webinar will address the important issues in this final rule, including (a) the changes to DSH Payments as a result of CMS implementation amendments to the DSH statute made by ACA section 3133, (b) the new inpatient admissions standard (stays crossing at least two midnights), and (c) the outlier threshold for FFY 2014. This webinar will also provide practical suggestion about how providers should respond to the changes made by this new Rule.
