National Provider Call Will Review Hospital VBP Program

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) will hold a series of National Provider Calls in October and November to support implementation of the Hospital Value-Based Purchasing (VBP) Program. The first call will be held Oct. 4 from 10:30 a.m. to noon (PT). In a question-and-answer format, the session will address the fiscal year (FY) 2013 Actual Percentage Payment Summary Report, as well as important operational details for FY 2013, the first year in which value-based incentive payments will be made under the Hospital VBP Program. CMS experts also will discuss a review and corrections process and an appeals process for the program. To register, visit For more information on the Hospital VBP Program, visit
