Inpatient Prospective Payment System (IPPS) Data Dashboard

What is the cost of a knee implant in the inpatient setting? How much does Medicare pay for different types of cardiac valve procedures? How has Medicare inpatient volumes changed over time for inpatient hip and femur procedures?

McDermottPlus’ new, interactive Inpatient Prospective Payment System (IPPS) Data Dashboard shows the actual costs to hospitals for providing care to Medicare fee-for-service inpatients based on data published by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) as part of its rulemaking cycle. CMS uses this information to set payment rates for individual Medicare Severity-Diagnosis Related Groups (MS-DRGs), and it can be used by device manufacturers, hospitals and the general public to understand the resources needed to care for different types of inpatients.
