NAUH Comments on Proposed Medicare Regulation

In a letter to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), the National Association of Urban Hospitals (NAUH) has commented on Medicare’s proposed FY 2014 inpatient prospective payment system regulation.

NAUH’s letter addresses Medicare disproportionate share (Medicare DSH) payments, the coding adjustment for inpatient payments, the outlier threshold, the labor-related share adjustment, the value-based purchasing program, the hospital readmissions reduction program, and graduate medical education.

NAUH also proposes its own, detailed formula for recalculating the size of the FY 2014 Medicare DSH pool based on the difference between the calendar year in which the Congressional Budget Office projected the rate at which the number of insured people would grow and the fiscal year for which the Medicare DSH pool needs to be calculated.
