Medicare program, fiscal year 1990; mid-year changes to the inpatient hospital prospective payment system--HCFA. Final rule with comment period.

[No authors listed]


This final rule with comment implements several provisions of the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1989 that affect Medicare payment for inpatient hospitals and that, in general, take effect on April 1, 1990. This final rule also responds to comments received concerning the changes we made in 1989 in implementing provisions of the Medicare Catastrophic Coverage Act of 1988 concerning adjustments applicable to prospective payment hospitals and to the target amounts of hospitals and units excluded from the prospective payment system due to the elimination of the day limitation on covered inpatient hospital days. We are making additional changes in these provisions to take into account the Medicare Catastrophic Coverage Repeal Act of 1989, and changes in the law made by the Family Support Act of 1988, which clarified the criteria for adjusting target amounts and changed the date for implementing that provision.
