Prospective Payment Systems
Predetermined, fixed payments in prospective payment systems (PPS) pose numerous challenges for health care providers. BKD National Health Care Group can help you get paid appropriately and compliantly by Medicare for services you provide, based on the classification system of that service. Our experience working with PPS includes acute inpatient hospitals, home health agencies, hospice, hospital outpatient, inpatient psychiatric facilities, inpatient rehabilitation facilities, long-term care hospitals, skilled nursing facilities and more.
BKD National Health Care Group advisors can help your facility with the following prospective payment systems:
- Inpatient Prospective Payment System for Acute Care Hospitals (IPPS)
- Home Health Agencies Prospective Payment System (HHA PPS)
- CMS Home Health Agency (HHA) Center
- Outpatient Prospective Payment System (OPPS)
- Inpatient Rehab & Psych PPS
- Skilled Nursing Facilities (SNF PPS)
- Long-term Care Hospitals (LTCH PPS)
The BKD Corporate Finance team did an excellent job representing the financial interest of McCune-Brooks Regional Hospital in the transaction. The Board of the city-owned, not-for-profit hospital had a fiduciary duty to ensure long-term access to health care in the community. Although we knew who the likely party was going to be in the transaction, BKDCF used their expertise in health care transactions to negotiate the financial components of the transaction from a position of strength. The BKDCF team did an excellent job managing the process, helping to achieve an outcome that was approved unanimously by the Board.

Their professionals have provided us with audit, tax, coding and billing and cost report services and have assisted us in operations management and revenue enhancement. Routinely, implementation of their recommendations had a positive influence on the financial outcomes of our programs.
