Volume Decrease Payment


Is your facility receiving optimal medicare reimbursement for its inpatient services? Numerous factors beyond your control can lead to inpatient volume declines. A sole community provider or Medicare-dependent hospital that experiences an admissions decline of more than 5 percent may be eligible for additional cost-based reimbursement in the form of a lump-sum payment through federal Medicare regulations. The Rybar Group can help you identify these opportunities.
