Leapfrog's Comments on CMS FY18 Proposed Rule

June 13, 2017

Each year the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) gives stakeholders the opportunity to publicly comment on its proposed rules and regulations. 

Here's a link to Leapfrog's letter in response to the request for public comments. Leapfrog takes this opportunity to share comments and feedback regarding the proposed rule in support of its mission to advance transparency and public reporting in health care. 

As an organization representing purchasers of health care, Leapfrog is working to ensure that patient safety remains a top priority and that value-based purchasing efforts are effective in transforming both the cost and quality of care for patients and families. 

Please note that CMS issued the Hospital IPPS FY 18 Final Rule on August 1, 2017. Click here to view an analysis of the final rule compared to the comments and suggestions Leapfrog sent to CMS.
