CMS Issues FY 2015 IPPS Final Rule


Posted on: 8/5/2014

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) late yesterday issued its hospital inpatient prospective payment system final rule for fiscal year 2015.

While CMS indicates it will continue to work with stakeholders to address an alternative payment methodology for short inpatient stays, the final rule does not repeal the two-midnight rule.

The final rule will be published in the August 22 Federal Register and most of its provisions will take effect October 1.
