Per CMS, Medicare would drop by half the payment amount that is provided to the Provider when patients receive health care at medical facilities center that is owned by hospitals but located off their campuses. As per the proposed rule under 2018 Physician Fee Pay Rule released by CMS on Thursday the rates would be dropped from 50% to 25% of what they would have been paid under outpatient rates.

This proposal was made by the Medicare and their comments are awaited by 11th July 2017. The prior, more generous payment made to off-campus facilities has led to hospitals acquiring physician practices at a rapid clip. But hospitals say the facilities while increasing their operating costs, allow them to provide greater access to healthcare, especially in underserved areas.
