The AHA has revised its readmissions penalty calculator to incorporate additional corrections to the hospital readmissions adjustment factors for fiscal year 2013. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services recently published the corrected adjustment factors in a revised impact file for the FY 2013 inpatient prospective payment system final rule. The AHA calculator, available to members at www.aha.org/readmissionscalc, helps hospital leaders estimate the dollar amount of their readmissions penalty under the policy.
