NAUH Urges CMS to Reconsider Proposed Outpatient Payment Changes

The federal government should not cut in half payments to physicians who care for their Medicare patients in off-campus, provider-based outpatient facilities.

It also should reconsider the circumstances under which hospitals can move their off-campus, provider-based hospital outpatient departments, or expand the services those departments offer, without losing their provider-based hospital outpatient department status.

These were among the comments NAUH offered to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services in response to CMS’s proposed Medicare physician payment fee schedule for 2018.
