Vernaglia Quoted on Effect of Change in Medicare Reimbursement Policy

16 January 2019 Bloomberg Law News
Partner Larry Vernaglia was quoted in a Bloomberg Law article, “Rural Hospitals Fear Losses From Medicare Payment Change,” about the Trump administration’s decision to stop paying more for Medicare outpatient services performed at an off-campus hospital-owned department than in a doctor’s office.

Vernaglia said the change is more sensitive for rural hospitals because “there often aren’t other provider groups available to absorb the access problem if they can’t provide the service.”
