Hospitals: Incorrect Maximum Payment for Sentinel Cerebral Protection System

Published 11/05/2018

The FY 2019 Inpatient Prospective Payment System (IPPS) Pricer contained an incorrect maximum new technology add-on payment for Sentinel Cerebral Protection System™. The issue will be corrected in November. Your Medicare Administrative Contractor (MAC) will reprocess these claims with a discharge date on or after October 1 through the implementation of the corrected IPPS Pricer. No action is required by hospitals.
