ABSTRACT
The article discusses the updated prospective payment system (PPS) of the national social insurance program Medicare in the U.S. in 2013. Medicare's payment policies include paying healthcare providers adequately to encourage them to remain in the system, encouraging efficiency and preventing fraud and discouraging payment errors. According to the author, hospitals need to develop cost-effective responses to highly complex payment systems.
