Carbondale, IL 62901 AGEdwards INVESTMENTS SINCE 1SS7 Overcharges by hospitals hit $2 billion WASHINGTON (AP) Federal investigators have concluded that the nation's hospitals are overcharging the Medicare program about $2 billion a year by admitting patients who do not need hospitalization. The projection is based on an analysis of 7,050 patient records at 214 hospitals randomly selected for a survey by the inspector general's office of the Department of Health and Human Services. The study found that 740 of the patients, or 10.5 percent, were admitted unnecessarily to hospitals. It projected that percentage to all hospital admissions to estimate how much money such practices are costing the Medicare program. "Although an estimated $939 million woulahave been spent providing care to these patients in other medical settings, reducing unnecessary admissions to hospitals is one of the most effective ways of saving Medicare dollars," says a draft report of the inspector general's study.

A copy was obtained by The Associated Press. Admitting patients who do not need hospitalization could be a way for hospitals to improperly increase their Medicare income under a new payment plan Congress imposed in 1983 that sets a fixed payment for each of 475 diagnosis related groups or DRGs, as they are commonly known. The report itself notes that under that plan, a hospital receives the same fixed payment for each admission for a particular diagnosis "regardless of the services provided or length of time a patient spends in the hospital." "Hospitals retain a profit when patient care costs less than the DRG payment, but must absorb losses when costs are higher than the DRG," it said. The 10.5 percent unnecessary admissions rate for cases sampled between October 1984 and March 1985 is far higher than the maximum 2.5 percent rate reported to the Health Care Financing Administration by the various monitoring groups "the federal agency hires to police hospital admissions.
