On Feb. 2 at 9 a.m. (PT), Chad Mulvany, CHA vice president, federal policy, and Tom Hubner, Toyon Associates, Inc. vice president, will hold a webinar to discuss the supplemental inpatient prospective payment system final rule and what it means for expanding resident training programs.

They will review issues related to Medicare Indirect Medical Education and Direct Graduate Medical Education payments, and how the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services is finalizing the following policies: 

  • Distribution of additional residency slots included in the Consolidated Appropriations Act (CAA) to qualifying hospitals
  • Resident cap increases for hospitals sponsoring Rural Training Track programs
  • Resident cap and/or per resident amount increases for certain hospitals that previously hosted residents for short durations

The rule implements legislative changes to Medicare payments to teaching hospitals contained in the CAA.
