A Look at the Federal Register – July 7, 2023
- Proposed Rule: CY 2024 End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) Prospective Payment Prospective Payment System (PPS): The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) issued its Calendar Year (CY) rule for ESDR, which would make minimal 1.6% increases to the base payment rate. Additionally, the proposed rule includes proposals for new add-on payment adjustments and seeks feedback on potential changes to thresholds used to determine whether a facility qualifies as a “low-volume” facility.
- Proposed Rule: CY 2024 Home Health PPS: CMS issued its CY 2024 proposed rule for the home health prospective payment system, which would reduce net home health payments by an estimated $375 million, or -2.2%, in calendar year 2024, relative to the year prior.
