This program discusses observation services with an emphasis on coding, billing and financial impacts with the development of the observation C-APC under OPPS. Observation continues to be a problem area relative to proper coding, billing and documentation particularly in relationship to the propriety of impatient admissions. CMS has developed a packaged payment process using a C-APC that makes a blanket payment of observation services. Whether hospitals recover their costs under this pagckaged approach is problematic. The reimbursement differences between a short inpatient stay versus observation will also be discussed.
