IPPS Proposed Changes Clarify Three-Day Rule

James Carroll, for HealthLeaders Media, May 16, 2011

"I would recommend that these cases are tracked internally until the physician fee schedule rule is issued to ensure that hospitals have the information for billing or rebilling the physician portion, as appropriate, under the new guidance in that rule."
