Federal judge backs hospitals in decision on site-neutral pay cuts
from Becker's Hospital CFO Report
A Washington, D.C., federal judge on Oct. 21 denied CMS' requests to modify and stay a previous court ruling on site-neutral pay cuts. In September, U.S. District Judge Rosemary M. Collyer ruled in favor of the American Hospital Association, deciding that CMS exceeded its statutory authority in 2018 when it expanded a site-neutral pay policy that cut the reimbursement rate for evaluation and management services provided at off-campus provider-based departments.
