ABSTRACT
The article reports that hospitals as a whole experienced an estimated increase of 3% in reimbursement, or nearly $2.3 billion, under the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services' (CMS) new inpatient prospective payment system using severity-adjusted diagnosis-related groups (DRG) during the first three quarters of fiscal 2008, according to a new analysis by the American Hospital Directory. These findings indicate that Congress' decision to roll back part of the CMS' so-called behavioral offset had a positive effect for the hospital industry.
