Abstract
When the Health Care Financing Administration implemented the Medicare prospective payment system (PPS), several types of hospitals and hospital units were excluded from the new reimbursement system, and they remained under the reasonable cost reimbursement system, subject to the target rate of increase limits. The implementation of PPS has been accompanied by several changes in hospital classification and in utilization patterns. This article examines some of these changes based on excluded facility counts and discharges by facility status under the PPS for fiscal years 1984-86.
