A Webinar & Audio Conference with Bill Phillips, Vice President and Chief Revenue Officer, Revenue Strategies, Inc.; and Anthony J. Scarcelli, Jr., CPA, Partner, IMA-Consulting, Inc. Because there were only 30 transfer DRGs in 2004, nobody noticed when CMS identified and recouped only "overpayments". Every hospital should notice and recover the "underpayments". This webinar relates the amazing story of Transfer DRGs; the impact of underpayments on hospitals; and how they can identify and recover this revenue.
Due to the advent of MS-DRGs, the number of DRGs impacted by CMS's post-acute transfer policy has grown from 190 in FFY 2007 to 273 in FFY 2008. Accordingly, this issue could have significant financial implications on your Medicare payments. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has been very aggressive in imposing its post-acute transfer policy instituting a one-way edit protocol that identifies overpayments and ignores underpayment situations. Based on our discussions with program representatives, the government's position is that the identification of underpayments "is the responsibility of the hospital provider, not CMS".
