Understanding Site-Neutral Payments: Video Series

by Cassling on Jul 5, 2016

The Medicare program currently pays significantly different rates for services provided in different settings, and site-neutral payments have been considered as one way of eliminating the payment gap. However, that option has proven to be a contentious issue.

In a previous Cassling webinar presented by The Advisory Board Company, Sruti Nataraja, practice manager, Research and Insights, discussed site-neutral payments. To help you understand site-neutral payments we’ve put together two short videos for you.

Watch the video below to understand site-neutral payments.



By implementing site-neutral payments, Medicare has the potential to save $29.5 billion over ten years—which is more than the estimated savings from increasing Medicare eligibility from 65 to 67. Watch the video below to learn the tangible impact of site-neutral payments.
