ABSTRACT
The article reports on the revamp of the inpatient prospective payment system (IPPS), released by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) on August 1, 2007. CMS stated that the restructured diagnostic-related groups (DRG) will account more fully for the severity of each patient's condition and that other provisions will ensure that Medicare no longer pays for the additional costs of certain preventable conditions.
