This report, generated uniquely for each COTH member institution, shows changes to hospital-specific Medicare outpatient revenue paid under the Outpatient Prospective Payment System for the upcoming year to reflect rate updates and policy changes proposed and/or finalized in the annual regulatory process.The hospital-specific reports are prepared for each COTH member twice annually: first in August/September following the release of the OPPS proposed rule, and again in November/December after publication of the final rule.
COTH members can use this report to:
- Estimate budget impacts for the upcoming year
- Unpack overall impacts into individual payment factors
- Benchmark against different hospital cohorts
- Examine the impact of policy changes on key outpatient service areas
