- Wage index

The Medicare hospital Inpatient Prospective Payment System is designed to pay hospitals based on a national average payment amount, adjusted for two factors that affect hospitals' costs: the patient's condition and market conditions in the hospital's location. The area wage index is used to calculate a payment adjustment that takes into account differences in hospital wage rates among labor markets.
