Changes to the Hospital Payment System

For almost the last year, we have been dealing with a process for modernizing the payment system in Maryland.  The application for a new agreement was filed with the federal government this week.  The attached article provides a summary perspective of the issue and is an interesting read.  What I derive from the article as well as the many discussions over the last year is that the capitated payment system that WMHS, along with nine other Maryland Hospitals, is under certainly  has the potential to be the payment model for the state, going forward.  Have a wonderful Easter weekend.
