Notice Served! CMS mandates transparency for Observation to Inpatient for Patients

CMS issued a late update to the Medicare Part B Deductible that was posted to the CMS web site on 01/02/2017

Part B deductible & coinsurance

2017 will bring a raise to the Part B Medicare deductible. It is going up to $183 per CY from $166 in 2016. Remember the 2% sequestration deduction from Medicare payments continues to be in effect until our new Administration can bring this to President Trump’s attention to change it. Stay tuned.

    Has there been a patient follow-up model devised with a list of questions from a CMS standpoint? Our institution is looking at this as the patient’s feedback is critical as it relates to telehealth care.
