Each year hospital personnel wait throughout summer with bated breath for the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to release the Inpatient Prospective Payment System (IPPS) Final Rule and the Outpatient Prospective Payment System (OPPS) and Medicare Physician Fee Schedule (MPFS) proposed rules – and this year is no different.
In addition to discussing what case managers need to know about the price transparency rule and the proposed prior authorization program from the IPPS final rule, Dr. Hirsch will provide important information on major changes to joint replacement and cardiac stent procedures in the OPPS proposed rule.
Dr. Hirsch will read through the thousands of pages in these rules and pull the most pertinent information that you absolutely need to know in order to remain compliant and optimize your organization’s operations.
Why This is Relevant:
The IPPS and OPPS rules are specifically written to instruct hospitals on changes to Medicare regulations. Hospitals must adhere to any regulatory changes and process changes that are mandated in the rules. The changes also affect workflow issues such as the inpatient-only list, and approval of new technologies. The physician fee schedule changes have a more important role as more health systems acquire physician practices and become responsible for their compliance with regulations.
