On Wednesday, July 12, 2017, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) released the Medicare Occupational Mix Adjustment (MOMA) survey data that hospitals recently submitted (deadline of July 3, 2017).
This data will be audited by the hospital’s assigned Medicare Audit Contractor (MAC). Hospitals can download the information from the CMS website at FY 2019 Wage Index Home Page.
Hospitals should verify that their information is present and representative of their submitted amounts. If there are any issues with your data, please contact your MAC immediately or feel free to contact BESLER’s DeLicia Maynard (Director, Reimbursement Integrity) or Scott Besler (Senior Manager, Reimbursement)
