This bill requires the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to establish a three-year demonstration program to determine the impact of third-party, interest-free payment arrangements on: (1) health outcomes, (2) patient engagement and satisfaction, and (3) claims for bad debt that are attributable to a hospital's inability to collect deductibles and coinsurance for Medicare hospital services. Under the program, the CMS shall provide a payment incentive to a hospital that participates in such a payment arrangement and demonstrates improvement in those three areas.
