The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and its Medicare Administrative Contractors (MACs) are performing S-10 audits for all impacted hospitals—and new complexities are developing. Additionally, new S-10 instructions and supporting documentation requirements have been released placing additional burdens on hospitals to meet stringent S-10 requirements upon cost report submission.

As federal fiscal year (FFY) 2019 Worksheet S-10 audits approach, it’s important that hospitals understand these changes as well as prepare for the next round of reviews and future cost report filings.

To stay current, join us for an on-demand webcast exploring these latest Worksheet S-10 developments. We’ll review the 2018 S-10 audit cycle in-depth and address findings from our participation in over 200 audits across all MAC jurisdictions, as well as the following key points:

  • The MAC audit data request letter and subsequent requests
  • Proposed Provider Reimbursement Manual S-10 instructions and required data templates
  • Best practices for completing cost report Worksheet S-10 in accordance with the cost report instructions and audit expectations
