Appeals Court Urged to Reject CMS Argument in Outpatient Payment Case

The AHA, joined by the Association of American Medical Colleges and a number of member hospitals, urged the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit to affirm a district court ruling that voided the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ calendar year 2019 payment cut for hospital outpatient services provided in grandfathered off-campus provider-based departments.
