This post has been archived and contains information that may be out of date.

CHA DataSuite has issued hospital-specific analyses of the federal fiscal year (FFY) 2024 Medicare long-term care hospital (LTCH) prospective payment system final rule.  

The analysis is intended to show how Medicare LTCH fee-for-service payments may change from FFY 2023 to FFY 2024 based on the policies set forth in the final rule. The impact of site-neutral payments for certain cases has been incorporated into this analysis. A detailed summary of the final rule is available for CHA members.  

The Bipartisan Budget Act mandates an inpatient prospective payment system equivalent payment rate for all discharges for LTCHs with fewer than 50% of their cases eligible for LTCH standard payment. This percentage and estimated impact, if LTCH fails to meet the threshold, is displayed where applicable.
