CHA DataSuite has issued a hospital-specific analysis of the federal fiscal year (FFY) 2023 Medicare inpatient prospective payment system (IPPS) proposed rule.
The analysis is intended to show how Medicare inpatient fee-for-service payments would change from FFY 2022 to FFY 2023 based on the policies set forth in the proposed rule. It compares the year-over-year change in operating, capital, and uncompensated care IPPS payments and includes breakout sections that provide detailed insight into specific policies that influence IPPS payment changes. They include:
- Potential payment penalties under the Inpatient Quality Reporting and Electronic Health Record Incentive programs
- Impact of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ (CMS) adjustment to the wage index of hospitals in the bottom quartile of wage index values nationally to reduce wage disparities
- Year-over-year impact of CMS’ proposed 5% cap on wage index decreases from FFY 2022
- Quality-based payment adjustments
- Disproportionate share hospital uncompensated care payments
Dollar impacts in this analysis may vary from those provided by other organizations due to differences in source data and analytic methods.
Comments on all aspects of the proposed rule are due to CMS by June 17. CHA will hold a members-only webinar on this proposed rule on May 25 at noon (PT).
