The 2015 OPPS proposed rule introduced Comprehensive APCs and more packaging that could impact your bottom line. Join us at 1 p.m. Tuesday, December 9 for HCPro's 12th annual OPPS final rule program. Expert speakers Jugna Shah, MPH, and Valerie A. Rinkle, MPA, return for this popular program to review which proposed policies CMS has finalized. They will analyze the final rule and deliver a comprehensive program to update you on the major changes coming January 1 under OPPS. When you understand where CMS is headed in 2015, you'll be in a position to plan your own internal education and process changes.
Proposed changes include:
  • 28 Comprehensive APCs, which are like “mini-DRGs”
  • Complexity adjustments for Comprehensive APCs
  • Expanded packaging, including all ancillary services with a mean cost of less than $100
  • Revised inpatient physician certification requirements
  • Reporting requirements for provider-based practices that are off-campus
