CMS Releases CY 2019 OPPS and ASC Final Rule

On November 2, 2018, CMS released a final rule implementing changes to the Hospital Outpatient Prospective Payment System (OPPS) and Ambulatory Surgical Center (ASC) Payment System for Calendar Year 2019.  CMS continued its drive toward site neutrality for outpatient services, specifically clinic visits for outpatient settings. While the proposed rule had recommended the equalization in payment occur in CY 2019, the OPPS final rule describes phasing in this change over two years.
