ABSTRACT
The article deals with the concerns expressed by hospitals over a new U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) rule that ends Medicare payments for healthcare-acquired conditions (HAC). According to Beth Feldpush of the American Hospital Association (AHA), the rule raised several unanswered questions. It notes that both outpatient and long-term-care payments could be affected by the new rule. Feldpush adds that the program could be perceived by some states as a way to curb Medicaid spending.
