CHA DataSuite has issued hospital-specific analysis of the federal fiscal year (FFY) 2021 Medicare inpatient psychiatric facility prospective payment system (IPF PPS) proposed rule. The analysis is intended to show providers how Medicare fee-for-service (FFS) payments would change based on the policies set forth in the FFY 2021 IPF PPS proposed rule. A summary of the proposed rule can be found here.  

The analysis incorporates changes to the IPF payment proposed by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, including a market basket update, Affordable Care Act-mandated market basket reductions, wage index budget neutrality, wage index, and labor share and change in rural status impact.  

The impacts provided do not include the 2% sequestration reduction to all lines of Medicare payment authorized by Congress through FFY 2030.
