Excerpt from Implementation of the Affordable Care Act -

On April 26th the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) issued a proposed rule to update Medicare payment policies and rates for inpatient stays. The proposed rule reduces payments by 2% for excessive readmissions and reduces payments by 1% for hospitals in the lowest-performing 25% related to hospital-acquired conditions. The proposed rule indicates that someone qualifies for inpatient status for Medicare Part A payment purposes if he or she has received care for at least two midnights.
