ABSTRACT
This article reports that the U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has released its fiscal year 2009 inpatient prospective payment system (PPS) final rule. The rule scales back the proposed new quality measures from 43 to 13 measures that hospitals must report to receive a full market basket update in 2010. Hospitals that fail to submit quality data will see CMS reducing payments by two percentage points from the annual percentage increase that would otherwise apply.
