The IHS CAHs are paid 101 percent of the all inclusive facility specific per diem rate established on a yearly basis from the most recently filed cost report information for covered inpatient services (on and after January 1, 2004). An average of 96 hours of acute inpatient care in a CAH shall be paid by Medicare Part A.
See Chapter 3, §18.104.22.168 of Pub. 100-04, Medicare Claims Processing Manual, for more information on the payment of inpatient CAH claims.
