CMS Notice of the Final Rule Making for Calendar Year 2019

Nov 15

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

As noted in the Proposed Rule (published in July 2018), 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. Therefore, OAS CAHPS will continue with voluntary reporting throughout 2019.

The next update (CY 2020 Rule) will be proposed in July and finalized in November 2019. The CY 2020 Rule will reflect any planned changes that would impact the 2020 data collection period (CY 2022 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.
