Deadline to Request Revisions on Worksheet S-10 Data is Sept. 30

Posted on July 21, 2017

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) recently announced an opportunity for hospitals to revise data reported on Worksheet S-10 of their Medicare cost reports for fiscal years beginning between Oct. 1, 2013, and Sept. 30, 2014. On or before Sept. 30, Medicare Administrative Contractors (MACs) must receive any amended cost reports for fiscal years beginning during federal fiscal year (FY) 2014 that are submitted for revised Worksheet S-10 data.

Worksheet S-10 collects data related to uncompensated care. As part of the FY 2018 proposed rule to update the inpatient prospective payment system (IPPS), the CMS proposed a three-year phase-in to use Worksheet S-10 data for allocating the uncompensated care (UCC) pool, which comprises 75 percent of Medicare disproportionate share hospital payments. In its comments regarding the proposed rule, the MHA urged the CMS to delay using Worksheet S-10 data until audited data is available for hospitals, allowing for more accurate allocations. The CMS is expected to release the final rule to update the Medicare IPPS by Aug. 1 for the Oct. 1 effective date.

Members with questions should contact Vickie Kunz at the MHA.
