Back to the Future... Will CMS' Proposed Provider-Based Rules Reshape the Future? Or Will They Rewrite the Past?: Part I

Polsinelli's Reimbursement Institute presents a special 2-part webinar series, in which it will provide an in-depth analysis of the provider-based changes enacted in the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015 (Act) and CMS' proposed rules implementing those changes. Virtually overnight, Section 603 of that Act imposed sweeping changes that effectively shut down the development and implementation of new off-campus provider-based hospital outpatient departments.

To implement Section 603, CMS is issuing changes to Medicare's provider-based regulations as part of the CY 2017 Hospital Outpatient Prospective Payment System proposed rule – the first such changes since 2003. This webinar will review the newly proposed regulatory changes, address the practical implications of the proposed rule, and present ideas on how to operationalize CMS's proposals, should they be finalized. This webinar will also highlight potential comment areas that stakeholders should consider.

On our agenda:
  • Recap of Section 603 of the Act
  • Review the scope of changes in CMS's proposed rule
  • Legislative action since Section 603 was passed

On our panel:
  • Bragg E. Hemme, Shareholder
  • Lauren Z. Groebe, Associate
  • Julius W. Hobson, Jr., Senior Policy Advisor
