WASHINGTON -- Physicians and policy makers are divided on how to level the playing field on physician-owned specialty hospitals.

At press time, MedPAC was preparing to vote on draft proposals that would refine the diagnosis-related groups (DRGs) used to determine hospital payments to better account for differences in severity of illness among patients.
