CMS Releases Proposed Rule for Hospital Value-Based Purchasing Program

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (ACA) requires the Secretary of Health and Human Services to establish a VBP program to pay hospitals for their actual performance on quality measures, rather than just the reporting of those measures, beginning in fiscal year (FY) 2013. The VBP program will apply to all acute-care prospective payment system (PPS) hospitals. Read a summary of key provisions of the proposed rule.
