As hospitals prepare to comply with the final federal Outpatient Prospective Payment System (OPPS) and Medicare Physician Fee Schedule rules coming out this fall, IHA Event Sponsor Advis is leading a complimentary webinar on how the changes may affect IHA members. The federal changes are expected to include:

  • Medicare provider-based guidelines for off-campus hospital locations;

  • Inpatient Prospective Payment System and OPPS reimbursement changes, including the final rule on hospital charge transparency; and

  • Telehealth reimbursement expansion with new Medicare Advantage guidelines.

 The webinar will also provide an overview of the healthcare trends expected to impact hospitals in 2020:

  • The growing aging population and out-of-the-box service strategies;

  • Diversity and inclusion initiatives;

  • Readmission prevention strategies and innovations;

  • Telehealth to address behavioral health service gaps and ensuring reimbursement; and
