Physician Supervision

In the 2009 Outpatient Prospective Payment System Final Rule, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services issued what they called a "clarification and restatement" of an existing policy regarding physician supervision of outpatient therapeutic services that was in place since 2001. Since the adoption of that rule, KHA, AHA and other organizations have pointed out to CMS that their clarification was a change in Medicare policy. In the 2010 OPPS final rule, CMS made some changes, but the changes have not gone far enough. This site contains documents explaining the concerns voiced by member hospitals, as well as a log of actions taken by KHA.
