The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has issued its federal fiscal year (FFY) 2022 inpatient prospective payment system (IPPS) proposed rule.
CMS proposes to increase payment rates by approximately 2.8% in fiscal year 2022 compared to FFY 2021 for hospitals paid under the IPPS that successfully participate in the hospital inpatient quality reporting program and are users of meaningful electronic health records (EHR). Based on all changes in the proposed rule, CMS estimates hospital payments will increase by $2.5 billion.
CHA is hosting a webinar to discuss these updates. You are invited to join, ask questions and share your thoughts. Member remarks and observations are encouraged and taken into account when finalizing CHA’s comments about the proposed rule. The webinar discussion will include:
