Could off-campus, provider-based clinics and operations be subject to site-neutral payments?

Although this specific issue, as well as the related issue of the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule (MPFS), is not addressed in the 2018 Outpatient Prospective Payment System (OPPS) proposed rule published last week in the Federal Register, industry experts anticipate that in the coming years (if not decades), all off-campus clinics and operations will be subject to such payments.

Reporting on our lead story during the next edition of Monitor Mondays will be one of those experts: author, educator, and consultant Duane Abbey. Abbey has been reporting on the issue of provider-based clinics throughout the year on RACmonitor, and he will join the broadcast on Monday to report on the uncertain future of these clinics.
