The rule also implements Section 603 of the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015, which requires that, with the exception of dedicated emergency department services, services furnished in off-campus provider-based hospital outpatient departments that began billing under the OPPS on or after Nov. 2, 2015 no longer be paid under the OPPS.

Under the rule, hospitals will be paid under the physician fee schedule at newly established rates for these services.
