The Health Care Practices of Foley & Lardner LLP and Moss Adams LLP invite you to our next webinar on hospital site neutral payments – an update on Medicare outpatient prospective payment system (OPPS) proposed rules.

We will provide an update on the July 6, 2016 Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services' (CMS) implementation of Section 603 of the Bipartisan Balanced Budget Act of 2015, which eliminates hospital-level OPPS reimbursement for all new (non-grandfathered) off-campus outpatient departments of hospitals that are not dedicated emergency departments (OCODP).

This significant, yet brief, statutory provision is already in effect. However, there are many unanswered questions, which we hope to address and clarify. These include:

  • The impact of a change of services, site, or location for a grandfathered OCODP 
  • Any impact to 340b drug pricing 
  • The definition of "on campus" 
  • Instances of change in ownership of grandfathered OCODPs 
  • Treatment of expansion of space/services in a grandfathered OCODP

Foley and Moss Adams have been monitoring the development of CMS policy surrounding Section 603 since it was signed into law in November 2015, and we expect that the first formal guidance from CMS will be issued in connection with the CY 2017 OPPS/ASC Proposed Rule. While the publication date has not yet been established, the 2016 Proposed Rule was originally published in the Federal Register on July 8, 2015. In anticipation of a similar publication schedule for the CY 2017 Proposed Rule, we will cover any updates in early July 2016.
