CMS posts final/proposed rules

Today the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) released a final rule outlining the hospital-specific limitation on Medicaid disproportionate share hospital payments under the Social Security Act. CMS claims that the final rule was written to provide ample flexibility to states and hospitals moving forward.  The final rule makes some modifications to the interim rule that has been in place since 2008. CMS also released a proposed update to the Medicare Shared Savings Program--the program under which Medicare Accountable Care Organizations operate. The proposed rule is meant to "make refinements" to the program based on the experiences of various ACOs since the promulgation of the original rules in 2011.  NRHA will review the proposed update and provide comments.  CMS has stated that the comment period will be 60 days.
