Deadline Approaching To Amend FY 2014 Medicare Cost Report

The deadline for hospitals to amend their Medicare cost report Worksheet S-10 for fiscal year (FY) 2014 is Sept. 30.

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) announced in the inpatient prospective payment system final rule for 2017 that it plans to postpone the use of data from the Worksheet S-10 to calculate uncompensated care for Medicare disproportionate share hospital (DSH) payments. However, CMS intends to transition to the Worksheet S-10 no later than FY 2021.

In the meantime, CMS will focus on ensuring the accuracy of Worksheet S-10 and clarifying instructions for completing the form. CMS also plans to establish an auditing process to validate information being reported by hospitals on the form.

For more information on submitting a revised Worksheet S-10 form to the Medicare Administrative Contractor, see the CMS transmittal issued in July.
