AHA statement on FY 2021 proposed IPPS rule

We are very disappointed that CMS continues down the unlawful path of requiring hospitals to disclose privately negotiated contract terms. The disclosure of privately negotiated rates will not further CMS's goal of paying market rates that reflect the cost of delivering care. These rates take into account any number of unique circumstances between a private payer and a hospital and simply are not relevant for fixing Fee-for-Service Medicare reimbursement.
