Inpatient Prospective Payment System Final Rule Rescinds Proposed Survey Disclosure Rule
The 2018 IPPS/LTCH PPS proposed rule contained a provision that would have required AOs to make survey reports and acceptable plans of correction publicly available within approximately three months of issuance. The Final Rule, released on August 2, 2017, withdrew the proposed rule in its entirety due to potential conflict with the Social Security Act.
