The following CMS update can be found on the CMS website HERE.
Amended cost reports must be received by September 30, 2017
Some Inpatient Prospective Payment System (IPPS) hospitals have requested CMS provide them with an additional opportunity to revise the Worksheet S-10 submitted with their FY 2014 cost reports (starting on or after October 1, 2013, and prior to October 1, 2014). Amended FY 2014 cost reports due to revised or initial submissions of Worksheet S-10 received by Medicare Administrative Contractors on or before September 30, 2017, will be uploaded to the Healthcare Cost Report Information System by December 2017. Providers must follow the current requirements for electronic submission of cost reports found at 42 CFR §413.24(f)(4), which includes submitting:
- Hard copy of a settlement summary
- Statement of certain worksheet totals found within the electronic file
- Statement signed by its administrator or chief financial officer certifying the accuracy of the electronic file or the manually prepared cost report
Requests to amend or submit FY 2014 worksheet S-10 received after September 30, 2017, will still be accepted under normal timelines and procedures. Revisions to Worksheet S-10 from other fiscal years, revisions to other worksheets of the FY 2014 cost reports, or revisions to Worksheet S-10 by non-IPPS hospitals are not subject to this instruction.
