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.
The 2021 rules bring added anticipation to see if CMS makes permanent any of the regulatory changes that were used during the COVID-19 pandemic.
No, Dr. Hirsch will not go through the changes to the CC and MCC designations or the edits to code sets in this RACmonitor webcast. But, he will read through the thousands of pages and pull the most pertinent information that care management and utilization review 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.
