Le g is la tive Re q u ire m e n ts  Multiple requirements  Legislation requires that the FY 2013 Hospital VBP program apply to payments for discharges occurring on or after October 1, 2012  Hospital VBP measures must be included on Hospital Compare website for at least one year and specified under the Hospital IQR program  Secretary must establish and announce the performance standards not later than 60 days prior to the beginning of the performance period for FY involved  Performance Period reliability (9 months beginning 7/1/11 proposed)  Regulatory development  CMS anticipates issuing a final rule as soon as possible after close of comment period so it has enough time to calculate performance scores, value-based incentive payments, etc. 4
