Reimbursement & Regulatory Update: Inpatient Proposed Rules —3-Part Series

Tuesday-Thursday, June 2-4, 2020 | 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm CST

Reimbursement legislation and regulations are continuously evolving, and so must you. Join John Waltko, Vice President of QHR Health Regulatory and Financial Reporting, for this quarter’s Reimbursement and Regulatory update as he covers important issues such as proposed rules, new rules, federal legislation, landmark court decisions and changes in policy or policy interpretations by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) that affect hospital inpatient reimbursements.

This 3-part series will cover payment rate changes, Medicare geographic reclassification, uncompensated care payment revisions, Medicare DSH payment revisions, Medicare Low Volume Payment Adjustment updates, cost reporting developments and other payment policies being proposed by CMS for the 2021 federal fiscal year. The CMS proposed rule is expected to be issued by May 1, 2020.

A number of reimbursement issues related to the COVID-19 Pandemic Emergency Relief Fund payments, FEMA funding issues and other CMS issued waivers could be discussed in the Proposed Rule. We will provide detailed attention to items directly related to COVID-19 funding and any subsequent reporting, settlement issues and cost reporting implications.

Other inpatient proposed payment rules will likewise be covered for SNFs, inpatient psychiatric services and rehabilitation hospitals; if CMS has material and significant policy proposals. Regulatory and legislative developments impacting hospital reimbursements will also be highlighted.
