On February 1, 2012, CMS published a notice correcting technical errors in the tables accompanying the final rule entitled “Medicare Program; Hospital Inpatient Prospective Payment Systems for Acute Care Hospitals and the Long-Term Care Hospital Prospective Payment System and Fiscal Year 2012 Rates,” which appeared in the August 18, 2011 Federal Register. The errors involved corrections to Table 2 (adding wage index data for certain omitted providers), Table 4C (adding a wage index value for a geographic area), and Table 9A (adding three providers to the listing of Hospital Reclassifications and Redesignations). The corrections are applicable to hospital payments and discharges on or after October 1, 2011.
