Please join us at noon on Wednesday, October 11 for an educational webinar on the recent CMS updates on reporting of uncompensated care costs and the revised deadline to submit. This is a significant and time-sensitive topic, as these costs — reported on worksheet S-10 of the Medicare cost report — are currently used to determine each disproportionate share hospital’s payment from the $6.8 billion uncompensated care pool. Register for the webcast here.
Although CMS’ updated instructions provide additional clarity, complexities remain regarding how hospitals are to report uncompensated care cost. The webinar will address the new CMS instructions, as well as the associated complexities, to provide hospitals with valuable insight.
For purposes of worksheet S-10 revisions, amended cost reports that begin during federal fiscal years 2014 and 2015 are due to Medicare Administrative Contractors no later than October 31, 2017. (Beth Zborowski)
