The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) is requiring the Medicare Administrative Contractor (MAC) for each region to audit the S-10 forms that are submitted by hospitals as part of their Medicare cost report. CMS is transitioning to use of the S-10 form for DSH calculation purposes and is requiring the MACs to audit a set of hospitals to evaluate accuracy of the forms submitted. Noridian confirmed it will be sending audit notices to 50 hospitals within the 10-state Jurisdiction F region but was unable to indicate which Washington hospitals, if any, were selected by CMS for the audit. If you receive a notice or need additional information, please contact Andrew Busz at firstname.lastname@example.org.
