The AHA today issued a Regulatory Advisory with a summary of the July 31 Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ final rule for the inpatient psychiatric facility prospective payment system for fiscal year 2021.

CMS will increase in FY 2021 IPF payments by a net 2.3%, the equivalent of $95 million. The increase is a reflection of a 2.2% market-basket update, subject to a productivity adjustment of zero percentage points, and an additional 0.1 percentage point offset for the outlier fixed-dollar loss threshold amount. The rule takes effect Oct. 1.
