Teaching hospitals cannot factor in research that isn’t patient-care related in their calculations for graduate medical education Medicare reimbursements, according to a recent decision by the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals.
 
The court upheld the CMS’s position that this type of research could not be included in hospital’s indirect GME costs for 1983 to 2001. The case was a challenge to a Department of Health and Human Service regulation issued in 2010 that stated that “pure research” could not be included in indirect costs for those years.  The Affordable Care Act stated the same applied for 2001 and forward.
