CMS Notice of the Final Rule Making for Calendar Year 2020

Nov 6

The Hospital Outpatient Prospective Payment and Ambulatory Surgical Center Payment Systems and Quality Reporting Programs calendar year (CY) 2020 Final Rule notification has been posted on CMS' website. The notification provides a preview of what will be posted in the Federal Register on November 12, 2019. The notice is available here.

As noted in the Proposed Rule (published in July 2019), CMS proposed 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. Therefore, OAS CAHPS will continue with voluntary reporting throughout 2020.

The next update (CY 2021 Rule) will be proposed in July 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).

If you have questions, you can contact the OAS CAHPS Survey Coordination Team via e-mail at oascahps@rti.org or call 1-866-590-7468.
