CMS posted a revision deadline for the Medicare Cost Report Worksheet S-10. For any questions or assistance please contact BESLER’s DeLicia Pierce, Director of Reimbursement Integrity.
Providers have been granted, by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), additional time to amend their Medicare cost report worksheet S-10. The original deadline was for their respective Medicare Administrative Contractors (MACs) to receive the revised cost reports on or before September 30, 2017. This was first published in the Federal Fiscal Year (FFY) 2018 Inpatient Prospective Payment System (IPPS) and Long-Term Care Hospital Prospective Payment System (LTCH PPS) final rule (82 FR 38208, August 14,2017).
CMS states that for any revision to be considered, the provider’s amended FFY 2014 and FFY 2015 cost reports due to their changes in worksheet S-10, must be received by their MAC on or before October 31, 2017.
CMS has granted this extension for resubmission of certain worksheet S-10 data from September 30, 2017, until October 31, 2017. The extension was originally just for IPPS hospitals in the areas impacted by the hurricanes, but has now been extended to all IPPS hospitals.
CMS further suggest that if there are any providers in areas affected by the recent hurricanes, that may have difficulty meeting this new deadline, they should contact both CMS and the MAC to see if additional time can be granted.
BESLER suggests that if you have any questions please confirm any concerns surrounding the extension directly with the MAC.
