CHA Releases DataSuite Reports on OPPS Proposed Rule
Federal

CHA released hospital-specific DataSuite reports this week to member hospitals on the financial impact of the Medicare outpatient prospective payment system (OPPS) proposed rule for calendar year (CY) 2012.

The analyses are intended to show hospitals how their outpatient payments will change from one year to the next due to the policies set forth in the proposal. Under the proposed rule, California hospital outpatient payments would increase by 0.8 percent over CY 2011 rates.

CHA will submit comments, due Aug. 30, to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. CHA’s summary of the CY 2012 OPPS proposed rule is posted at www.calhospital.org/cy2012-opps-proposed-rule-summary. Contact: Matt Absher, (916) 552-7669, mabsher@calhospital.org.
