ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: This Final Rule implements for Sole Community Hospitals (SCHs) the statutory provision at title 10, United States Code (U.S.C.), section 1079(j)(2) that TRICARE payment methods for institutional care be determined, to the extent practicable, in accordance with the same reimbursement rules as those that apply to payments to providers of services of the same type under Medicare. This Final Rule implements a reimbursement methodology similar to that applicable to Medicare beneficiaries for inpatient services provided by SCHs. It will be phased in over a several-year period. This Final Rule also provides for special reimbursement for labor/delivery and nursery services in SCHs and creates a possible General Temporary Military Contingency Payment Adjustment (GTMCPA) for inpatient services in SCHs and for Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs). DATES: This rule is effective October 7, 2013. Applicability Date: The regulations setting forth the revised reimbursement system shall be applicable for all admissions to Sole Community Hospitals and Critical Access Hospitals commencing on or after the first day of the month which is at least 120 days from the date of publication of this rule in the Federal Register.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00021 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 48303 I. Executive Summary A. Purpose of the Final Rule The purpose of this Final Rule is to implement for SCHs the statutory requirement that TRICARE inpatient care ‘‘payments shall be determined to the extent practicable in accordance with the same reimbursement rules as apply to payments to providers of services of the same type under Medicare.’’ Medicare pays SCHs the greater of the amount under the general inpatient prospective payment system method based on diagnosis-related groups (DRGs) or an amount based on the hospital’s reported costs. TRICARE pays for most hospital care under a DRG-based prospective payment system similar to Medicare’s, but exempted SCHs from this system, instead paying them billed charges. Paying billed charges is fiscally imprudent and inconsistent with TRICARE’s governing statute. Paying SCHs under a method similar to Medicare’s is prudent, practicable, and harmonious with the statute. The Final Rule will transition over a several year period from the current billed charge method to the new method. The transition will be gradual to reduce the impact on the SCHs. Network SCHs will have payment reductions limited to 10 percent per year. Non-network SCHs will have reductions limited to 15 percent per year. The legal authority for this Final Rule is 10 U.S.C. 1079(j)(2). B. Summary of the Major Provisions of the Final Rule 1. Ultimate Payment Method for SCHs Following the transition period, TRICARE will reimburse SCHs for inpatient care the higher of the DRGbased amount applicable to most hospitals or an amount approximating the SCH’s costs. The cost-based amount will be determined by applying the SCH’s most recent Medicare cost-tocharge ratio (CCR) to the SCH’s charges. Individual claims will be paid under this cost-based method, followed by a year-end review to determine whether in the aggregate the DRG-based method would have paid more. If so, TRICARE will pay the SCH the aggregate difference. 2. Transition Period To protect SCHs from sudden significant reductions, the Final Rule will gradually transition from the base year of paying 100 percent of allowable charges (which is either the billed charge or, in the case of network hospitals, a voluntary discounted E:\FR\FM\08AUR1.SGM 08AUR1
