Medicare Program; Solicitation for Proposals From Rural Hospitals to Participate in the Medicare Hospital Gainsharing Demonstration Program Under Section 5007 of the Deficit Reduction Act
This notice is to inform rural inpatient hospitals of an opportunity to apply to participate in the Medicare Hospital Gainsharing Demonstration being implemented by CMS. The Medicare Hospital Gainsharing Demonstration authorized under section 5007 of the Deficit Reduction Act (DRA) of 2005 was established to test and evaluate methodologies and arrangements between hospitals and physicians designed to govern the utilization of inpatient hospital resources and physician work. The purpose of this demonstration is to improve the quality and efficiency of care provided to Medicare beneficiaries and to develop improved operational and financial hospital performance with the sharing of remuneration payments between hospitals and physicians in six projects, each project consisting of one hospital. Two projects must be rural. Because we received a limited response from rural hospitals to our original solicitation in September 2006, we are re-issuing our solicitation for proposals from rural hospitals only. Rural hospitals that submitted proposals previously are eligible to reapply. The goals and objectives of the demonstration remain unaltered. This demonstration will be limited in scope: we intend to focus on the short-term impacts of gainsharing programs.
