In the Medicare Inpatient Prospective Payment System Final Rule for 2019, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services requires hospitals to provide a list of their standard charges in machine-readable format ( e.g. XML, CSV) as of Jan. 1, 2019. The rule allows hospitals to determine how best to provide a list of their standard charges (their chargemaster or another form of their choice). The information below will assist you with developing and implementing your transparency policies and information.
