Want to know how you can help your local hospitals? Help us show support for Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) proposed rule CMS-1716-P.

Why Is this Important?
● Under the current wage index, all 95 counties in Tennessee fall among the very lowest reimbursement rates in the U.S.

● The wage index has created a challenging environment that has negatively impacted the health care system in Tennessee.

● Tennessee has the second highest hospital closure rate in the United States.The fundamentally flawed wage index has played a key role in these closures. Without the relief that CMS has proposed, Tennessee hospitals will continue to suffer
and more may be forced to close their doors to the many Tennesseans who need care.

● The lower reimbursement rate drives down medical salaries, lower salaries reflect as lower labor costs, and lower labor costs result in further reimbursement reductions because labor costs are a core part of the AWI formula. This formula has sharply driven down Tennessee’s reimbursement
rate over the last 15 years.

● CMS proposed rule CMS-1716-P offers a constructive way to address these wage index disparities for hospitals with a wage index value below the 25th percentile, including 50 of Tennessee’s 88 participating hospitals.
