United States of Care Responds to 2025 Inpatient Prospective Payment System Rule

Published On June 11, 2024

On June 10, 2024, United States of Care (USofCare) submitted comments in response to the proposed rule from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) entitled “FY 2025 Hospital Inpatient Prospective Payment System (IPPS) and Long-Term Care Hospital Prospective Payment System (LTCH PPS) Proposed Rule.”

USofCare applauds CMS’s efforts to promote transparent, affordable, equitable, and people-centered care through the 2025 IPPS proposed rule. A majority of our response focuses on the proposed Transforming Episode Accountability Model (TEAM), while also highlighting CMS’s work to implement patient-first care (also known as value-based care), improve the standards for maternal health care delivery, and promote health equity across the board.

USofCare appreciates the opportunity to respond to the proposed rule.
