Sterling, VA (PRWEB) July 08, 2016
In April, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) released the 2017 Proposed Rule announcing the Uncompensated Care Pool (UCP) calculation for Medicare Disproportionate Share Hospitals (DSH) will transition away from the Days Proxy method to Worksheet S-10, Line 30 (non-Medicare UCC). There is little practical guidance in the 2017 Proposed Rule to show hospitals just what they will need to do to manage the major alteration in the redistribution of billions of dollars in uncompensated care reimbursement.
This 75 minute webinar will cover in detail the changes made to DSH reimbursement under the 2017 Medicare Inpatient Prospective Payment System (IPPS) Proposed Rule and the actionable steps hospitals will need to take to prepare for the switch in the methodology CMS will use to distribute uncompensated care reimbursement.
Join NAVEOS® founder, Robert Gricius, as he discusses practical steps hospitals will need to take to successfully navigate through these changes. He will review issues that remain unclear and highlight the areas in which facilities may provide commentary to CMS to improve the IPPS 2017 Final Rule; due to be published in August 2016.
Register today for this complimentary webinar.
