Today, CMS published the CY 2024 Hospital Outpatient Prospective Payment System (OPPS) Final Rule that includes required schemas as of 7/1/2024. CMS finalized this rule after an open comment period that resulted in feedback submissions from stakeholders all across the industry (including the Turquoise team!) and patients as consumers.

As compared to the Proposed Rule, the Final Rule extends the grace period for the new required schemas, which will go into effect on 7/1/2024.

Since the Proposed Rule, we’ve already heard from a number of providers keen on creating compliant MRFs. Turquoise has a process and a team in place to help! If you’re a hospital or health system, and you’re looking to make changes to your MRF, reach us here.
