CHA to Hold Member Briefing on Finalized Area Wage Index Proposal, Next Steps

For CEOs, CFOs, Chief Legal Counsel, Finance Staff, Government Relations Staff

CHA will host a complimentary members-only briefing Aug. 16 from 10-11 a.m. (PT) to update members on the finalized changes to the area wage index in the federal fiscal year 2020 inpatient prospective payment system final rule, as well as CHA’s next steps. 

As outlined in an Aug. 2 Advocacy Alert, CHA’s Executive Committee has authorized CHA to coordinate, organize, and finance two next advocacy steps on the inpatient payment cuts: 1) California hospitals’ appeal to the Provider Reimbursement Review Board (required for each hospital to then pursue legal action if needed) and 2) follow-up litigation.
