AHA updates inpatient payment calculators

October 4, 2013

The AHA has updated its fiscal year 2014 calculators for the Medicare hospital value-based purchasing, readmissions reduction and Disproportionate Share Hospital programs to reflect technical corrections to the FY 2014 inpatient prospective payment system final rule. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services published the correction notice yesterday. The AHA calculators help members estimate their payments or penalties from the programs under the rule.
