The Institute of Medicine has issued Geographic Adjustment in Medicare Payment, Phase I: Improving Accuracy, Second Edition to expand on recommendations for improving how the Medicare program calculates geographic practice cost indexes made in an earlier report. The second edition makes four additional recommendations, which are detailed in Chapter 5, on methods to set the work adjustment, calculate labor expenses in the practice expense, and use cost share weights. All the recommendations contained in the first edition remain unchanged.
