Pursuant to a legislative requirement, GAO reviewed the Health Care Financing Administration's (HCFA) new rule on changes to the hospital inpatient prospective payment systems and fiscal year 1999 rates. GAO noted that: (1) the final rule would revise the Medicare hospital inpatient prospective payment systems for operating costs and capital-related costs to implement applicable statutory requirements; (2) the final rule would implement applicable statutory requirements concerning the payment for the direct costs of graduate medical education; and (3) HCFA complied with the applicable requirements in promulgating the rule.
