On July 13, 2011, CMS published a document correcting technical errors that occurred in its May 5, 2011 proposed rule to update the Medicare hospital inpatient prospective payment system and the long-term care hospital prospective payment system for fiscal year (FY 2012). The corrections address the calculation of the outmigration adjustment and the listing of hospitals eligible for this adjustment (which also impacts the provider’s wage index value). The correction of this error results in an additional 104 providers being eligible for the outmigration adjustment in the FY 2012 proposed wage index. The final rule also should be released in the near future. Separately, CMS has published a notice correcting technical errors in its May 6, 2011 final rule implementing the Medicare Hospital Inpatient Value-Based Purchasing Program. The notice is effective July 1, 2011.
