AAHKS submitted comments to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) regarding their proposed rule for FY2021 Medicare hospital inpatient prospective payment systems (IPPS). Within the proposed rule, CMS delineated development of two new proposed DRGs for Total Hip Arthroplasty (THAs) with a primary diagnosis of hip fracture. AAHKS commented on the proper implementation of those DRGs, should they move forward, including the impact on the Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement (CJR) bundled model. Read our letter. We also signed on to the AAOS letter with similar comments.
