CMS’ 2014 IPPS Final Rule redefined the criteria for inpatient admission when it implemented the 2-midnight rule, requiring physicians to document medical necessity for inpatient stays of two or more midnights. To determine compliance with the rule, MACs are conducting probe audits of inpatient claims with admission dates on or after October 1, 2013.

Join us at 1 p.m. (Eastern) Tuesday, June 24, for this 90-minute webcast. During this show, our expert speakers Ralph Wuebker, MD, MBA, and Jonathan G. Wiik, MSHA, MBA, will discuss results of the initial audits and current audit risk areas, offering tips for determining medical necessity, and providing best practice strategies.
