Re: Correction to Hospital Outpatient Calculator Relative Weights
This notice informs hospitals that the Department has updated the outpatient calculator that was posted to the website in late May. The calculator that was posted contained incorrect values for the relative weights.
The Outpatient Calculator Effective July 1, 2019 has been replaced with an updated version to correct the relative weights assigned to the EAPGs. The corrected version is dated June 14, 2019. The changes are only to the relative weights. There are no changes to the individual hospital rates.
