We have made available two new reports for PPS Hospitals on the Apprise Secure Portal. These reports are the Occupational Mix Data Analysis and the Wage Index Data Analysis. These reports can be very valuable in an providing hospitals easy-to-read format to view their most recent wage data as published by CMS. This data is intended to provide hospitals with a comparative review of the wage data that will be used to develop the federal fiscal year (FFY) 2018 Medicare hospital wage index.
It is extremely important that hospitals review these data:
Under CMS’ hospital wage index development timetable, hospitals have until September 2, 2016 to request revisions to this data. This is the only opportunity hospitals will have to request revisions to their data. Subsequent opportunities for correction can only address Medicare Administrative Contractor (MAC) mishandling of data. Requests and supporting documentation for revision requests must be submitted to the hospital’s MAC.
CMS’ hospital wage index development timetable is available from CMS here.
