On June 11, 2012, CMS published corrections to the May 11, 2012 proposed rule to update Medicare inpatient prospective payment system (IPPS) hospital and long-term care hospital prospective payment system (LTCH-PPS) payment and other policies for fiscal year (FY) 2013. Among other things, CMS is decreasing the national capital standard federal payment rate, which in turn decreases the standardized amount used to calculate IPPS payment rates from $5,750.04 to $5,748.09. As a result, proposed payment amounts for 2013 would be slightly lower than previously calculated. CMS also clarifies its preamble discussions of qualifications for LTCHs and calculation of outlier payments and corrects technical and typographical issues. CMS also has published corrections to technical and typographical errors in its April 12, 2012 final rule with comment period updating Medicare Advantage (MA) and Medicare Part D prescription drug program rules for contract year 2013.
