What is this ‘over 2-midnights’ requirement for inpatient status? Has CMS really accepted the ALJ rulings for inpatient versus observation? How is the Inpatient Part B billing supposed to work? What major changes are occurring for MS-DRGs in FY2014? Will the increase in cost centers for the cost report affect us? What is happening with Value-Based Purchasing? What is the status of Quality Reporting for IPPS? How can we know that we are meeting the requirements for the 3-Day Payment Window? What about Hospital Acquired Conditions? Are payments for device-dependent DRGs going up? Are there any special hospital changes or impacts?
Get the answers by joining Duane Abbey in this riveting audio session, where he’ll provide a brief overview of DRGs in general and discuss the overall changes in payments and payment formulas. He’ll review the key changes for inpatient admissions, observation, and Inpatient Part B billing, and also cover MS-DRG changes including CC and MCC exclusions. Duane will delineate the coding and documentation issues including the offsets, and review the financial changes with MS-DRGs including changes in weight and payment rates along with add-on payments.
Plus, he’ll discuss the issues such as readmission reduction and quality reporting, and also explain the ongoing issue of the 3-Day Payment window and hospital acquired conditions.
