The Medicare Payment Advisory Commission (MedPAC) unanimously approved seven recommendations on payment systems last week. The recommendations approved were:

Recommendation 1: Physicians and other health professionals The Congress should increase payment rates for physician and other health professional services by the amount specified in current law for calendar year 2017.

On Thursday, June 12, CMS released a notice regarding changes to the Low Volume Hospital (LVH) and Medicare Dependent Hospital (MDH) exception payments for the last 6 months of FY 2014.

This document addresses payment for these programs only for the second half of fiscal year (FY) 2014 (April 1, 2014, through September 30, 2014). CMS proposed to implement the statutory changes for the first half of FY 2015 (October 1, 2014, through March 31, 2015) in the FY 2015 Inpatient Prospective Payment System (IPPS)/Long-Term Care Hospital (LTCH) PPS proposed rule that appeared in the May 15, 2014 Federal Register.

KHA's Washington Liaison Larry Goldberg has provided an analysis of the announcement for KHA members. It can be found at http://www.new-kyha.com/Portals/5/NewsDocs/12Jun2014LVH-MDH.pdf.
