ABSTRACT
The article reports that the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) declared that final report of the Medicare inpatient prospective payment system (IPPS) for fiscal 2011 sees a 440-million-dollar drop in acute care hospital operating payments. It says that the slash is due to an alleged documentation and coding adjustment that deducts certain overpayments from 2008 and 2009. Meanwhile, long-term-care hospitals will receive around 22 million dollars in additional reimbursements.
