Medicare Now Covers Outpatient Total Joint Replacement Surgery

Beginning in 2020, Medicare will cover outpatient total joint replacement under the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ (CMS) new Hospital Outpatient Prospective Payment System (OPPS) & Ambulatory Surgical Center (ASC) Payment System Rule.

In the past, total joint surgeries have required extended stays in the hospital or a rehab facility while the patient recovers. Now, better anesthesia techniques, surgical techniques, and improvements in prosthetic implants have significantly reduced the recovery time after a joint replacement. This means that extensive hospital stays are no longer required for post-operative rehabilitation.

Find out what this new rule means for you, and if you are a candidate for outpatient joint replacement.
