This report, generated uniquely for each Council of Teaching Hospitals and Health Systems (COTH) member institution, estimates hospital-specific Medicare inpatient revenue paid under the Inpatient Prospective Payment System (IPPS) for the upcoming fiscal year to reflect rate updates and policy changes proposed and/or finalized during the annual regulatory process.The hospital-specific reports are prepared for each COTH member twice annually: first in late May following the release of the IPPS proposed rule, and again in August after publication of the final rule.
COTH members can use this report to:
- Estimate budget impacts for the upcoming fiscal year
- Track add-on payments, quality pay-for-performance programs, and other payment factors
- Validate and match your hospital’s own impacts estimates
- Input data to model overall reimbursement and per-case rates
