ABSTRACT
The article deals with the proposed inpatient prospective payment rule to be implemented by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) in the U.S. Citing flawed data and potential financial repercussions to the healthcare industry, hospital groups and other organizations are pressing the CMS to delay major changes in the way it pays hospitals for inpatient care. CMS is proposing to base the weights of diagnostic related group (DRG) on cost rather than charges in 2007, and replace the current DRG classification system with a larger set of severity adjusted DRG.
