8/2/2013 - CMS Publishes FY14 Inpatient Prospective Payment System Final Rule
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) issued a final rule updating fiscal year (FY) 2014 Medicare payment policies and rates for inpatient stays at general acute care and long-term care hospitals (LTCHs). The rule improves value and quality in hospital care and provides clarification about when a patient should be admitted to the hospital and responds to recent concerns about extended Medicare beneficiary stays in the hospital outpatient department. For more information, see the August 19, 2013 issue of the Federal Register.
