The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) will host a National Provider Call (NPC) with a question and answer session on the Fiscal Year (FY) 2013 Actual Percentage Payment Summary Report on Thursday, October 4, 2012 from 1:30 - 3:00 p.m. EDT. The purpose of this call is to discuss the Actual Percentage Payment Summary Report as well as important operational details for FY 2013 --the first year in which value-based incentive payments will be made under the Hospital Value-based Purchasing (VBP) Program. Additionally, CMS will discuss a review and corrections process and an appeals process for the program.
Hospitals can submit questions prior to the NPC as part of the registration process described on this page. Participants will also have the opportunity to ask questions at the end of the presentation on October 4. Before you submit questions, CMS encourages you to review the Frequently Asked Questions in the Hospital-Inpatient Questions and Answers tool available on the QualityNet website: http://www.qualitynet.org. To access this tool, select the Hospitals - Inpatient link in the Questions & Answers box on the right-hand column.

The polling questions on this page are designed to collect this information. Your feedback about this report will not affect the FY 2013 Actual Percentage Payment Summary Report but will be used to improve future reports.
