The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and its Medicare Administrative Contractors (MACs) are performing S-10 audits for all impacted hospitals. These audits are time and labor intensive, and outcomes could significantly impact future reimbursement.

Additionally, new S-10 templates have been released, placing additional burdens on hospitals to meet stringent requirements upon cost report submission.

As federal fiscal year (FFY) 2021 Worksheet S-10 audits approach, hospitals should be aware of these key observations and new instructions to prepare for the next round of reviews as well as future cost report filings.

Join us for our webcast, Worksheet S-10: MAC Audit Update and Future Reporting. We’ll review:

  • The 2020 S-10 audit cycle and address findings
  • Lessons learned from our participation in over 200 audits across all MAC jurisdictions
  • Recently published instructions
  • Recommended practices
