This episode explains the proposed changes to the site-neutral payment rule for off-campus hospital outpatient departments for CY 2018, as discussed in both the recent Hospital Outpatient Prospective Payment System (OPPS) and Medicare Physician Fee Schedule (MPFS) proposed rules. While the CY 2018 OPPS proposed rule provides surprisingly little new guidance on the rule’s implementation, the CY 2018 MPFS rule proposes to substantially lower the payment rate for non-excepted services from 50% to only 25% of the OPPS rate in CY 2018.
