Very Brief Blog: CMS Releases Final Inpatient Rule, FY2023

Each spring CMS publishes proposed Part A inpatient rules, and finalizes them around August 1.  Find the information here:

  • Press release here
  • Fact sheet here
  • Advance copy of final rule (typescript) on this page.
    • The paginated Federal Register rule will appear August 10.
Rulemaking adjusts payments in quality systems, such as excess readmissions.  There is also a long series of applications for New Tech Add On Payments (NTAP), which I'll review in the near future.
