CMS's Proposed Rule on Hospitals' "New" GME Programs Would Restrict Reimbursement for Such Programs


When Congress placed limits or "caps" on the number of full-time equivalents

(FTEs) that a hospital could count for direct graduate medical education

(DGME) and indirect medical education (IME) purposes, it expressly required

the Secretary to prescribe rules addressing medical residency training

programs established on or after January 1, 1995. CMS, consistent with this

directive, provided for an exception to the FTE caps if the hospital had no

allopathic or osteopathic residents in its most recent cost reporting period

ending on or before December 31, 1996, and it established such a program on

or after January 1, 1995. Thomas W. Coons of Ober|Kaler discusses.
