Editor’s note: Judith Kares, JD, CPC, regulatory specialist for HCPro, Inc., is the author of this week’s note from the instructor.

CMS will host a National Provider Call (NPC) with a question and answer session on the FY 2013 Actual Percentage Payment Summary Report (APPSR). The purpose of the call is to discuss the APPSR, along with implementation details for FY 2013. FY 2013 is the first year in which value-based incentive payments will be made under the Hospital Value-based Purchasing Program (the “VBP”). CMS will also discuss two program related processes—a review and corrections process and an appeals process. The NPC will be held on Thursday, October 4, 2012, from 1:30-3:00 p.m. ET.

Hospitals must register for the call on the CMS Upcoming National Provider Calls registration website. Registration will close at 12 p.m. on the day of the call or when available space has been filled, so early registration is advisable.
