ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the report issued by the U.S. Institute of Medicine (IOM) on the issue of adjusting payments based on geographic location. According to the report, nearly 40% of hospitals have received exceptions to how their adjustments are calculated. Linda Fishman of the American Hospital Association explains the group's opposition to the use of Bureau of Labor Statistics data. One of the key recommendations of the IOM report was the use of a single set of payment areas for both hospitals and physicians. INSET: LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION.
