CHA DataSuite has issued a hospital-specific analysis of calendar year (CY) 2024 Medicare outpatient prospective payment system proposed rule. The analysis is intended to show providers how Medicare outpatient fee-for-service payments will change from CY 2023 to CY 2024 based on the policies set forth in the proposed rule. A detailed summary of the proposed rule is available for CHA members.

The changes modeled in this analysis include the market basket update, Affordable Care Act-mandated market basket adjustment, budget neutrality adjustments, wage index (wage data and reclassifications) updates, application of the rural floor, increasing bottom quartile wage index values, 5% stop loss transition wage index, ambulatory payment classification factor/updates, and change in rural adjustment. 

Comments to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services are due by Sept. 5, referencing “CMS-1793-P”.  

CHA will provide an overview of the proposed rule as part of a members-only webinar scheduled for Aug. 21 from 9-10:30 a.m. (PT). Registration is required.
