CMS sets new tech add-on payment deadline

Device makers have until Nov. 20 to submit applications for fiscal year 2011 new technology add-on payments. Under the agency's Inpatient Prospective Payment System, hospitals using a new high-cost medical service or device may receive additional payment, allowing time for claims data to capture the cost of using the new technology within diagnosis related group codes, if the technology is deemed to substantially improve the diagnosis or treatment of Medicare beneficiaries.
