Fiscal year (FY) 2021 applications for Medicare inpatient prospective payment system (IPPS) new technology add-on payments will be discussed at a December 16, 2019 Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) town hall meeting.  Depending on the number of applications, a second day of meetings may be held on December 17.  The meetings provide an opportunity for interested parties to present data and recommendations regarding whether pending applications meet the CMS substantial clinical improvement criterion, as set forth in the final FY 2020 IPPS rule.  The registration deadline is December 9, 2019; additional dates for presenters, agenda items, and comments can be found in the CMS meeting notice.  CMS also will enable participation by phone or live-stream technology; CMS will provide details about those options on its website.
