The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has issued a proposed rule to update the Hospital outpatient prospective payment system (OPPS) and the ambulatory surgical center (ASC) payment system for calendar year (CY) 2015.
CMS states that the proposed rule, which contains a 60-day comment period ending September 2, would update the payment policies and payment rates for services furnished to Medicare beneficiaries in hospital outpatient departments and ASCs beginning January 1, 2015.
KHA's Washington liaison Larry Goldberg has prepared an analysis and commentary on the proposal, which is available at http://www.new-kyha.com/Portals/5/NewsDocs/03Jul2014OPPSProposed.pdf.
