AHA holding webcast on site-neutral payment provisions

The American Hospital Association (AHA) is holding a special members-only virtual advocacy day next week on the site-neutral payment provisions in the outpatient prospective payment system (OPPS) proposed rule.

The town hall webcast is scheduled for Wednesday, Aug. 10, at 1 p.m. CDT/noon MDT.

AHA Executive Vice President of Government Relations and Public Policy Tom Nickels and Vice President of Payment Policy Joanna Hiatt Kim will highlight AHA’s concerns with the proposal, which requires that, with the exception of dedicated emergency departments, items and services furnished in new off-campus provider-based departments will no longer be paid under the OPPS. Instead the services will be paid under other “applicable payment systems” under Medicare Part B beginning Jan. 1.

Nickels and Hiatt Kim also will outline the steps hospital leaders can take – both with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and their federal legislators – to advocate for changes to these misguided policies so that hospitals can continue to provide the highest quality health care to their communities.

Registration is required for all participants. Click here to register/log in.

Call 1-800-424-4301 with any questions about the webcast or its contents. Additional technical questions should be directed here.
