Notice of Publication of the Proposed Rule for Calendar Year 2020
8/9/2019 11:01 AM
Hospital Outpatient Prospective Payment and Ambulatory Surgical Center
Payment Systems and Quality Reporting Programs
CY 2020 Proposed Rule has been published in the Federal Register today,
August 9, 2019. The Proposed Rule is available on the OAS CAHPS website at
the link provided here.
In this Proposed Rule, CMS proposes to continue voluntary participation in
the Outpatient and Ambulatory Surgery Consumer Assessment of Healthcare
Providers and Systems (OAS CAHPS) Survey Based Measures OP-37a-e/ASC-15a-e,
until further action in future rulemaking. If approved in the Final Rule
(to be published in November 2019), this means that OAS CAHPS would
continue with the voluntary reporting throughout 2020.
The OPPS and ASC Rules are updated annually. The next update (CY 2021 Rule)
will be proposed in July or August 2020 and finalized in November 2020. The
CY 2021 Rule will reflect any planned changes that would impact the 2021
data collection period (CY 2023 payment determination).

Team via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
