Appeal could boost Pennsylvania hospitals’ reimbursement from Medicare
Pittsburgh Business Times, January 14, 2008
Pittsburgh-area hospitals, doctors and many home healthcare providers could see a bump in reimbursement for treating people on Medicare, if an appeal of the formula used in making the payments is successful. The appeal to the Center was made in December 2007 through Highmark Medicare Services. Winning the appeal could boost reimbursement to about 34 hospitals by $13 million starting in October, according to the Hospital Council of Western Pennsylvania.
