CHA DataSuite has issued a hospital-specific analysis of the Medicare hospital wage index average hourly wage criteria. The analysis allows hospitals to test their potential ability to achieve a federal fiscal year (FFY) 2022 Medicare hospital wage index reclassification. Applications for FFY 2022 hospital wage index reclassifications are due to the Medicare Geographic Classification Review Board by Sept. 1.
Applications not received by this deadline will not be considered.
Applications, instructions, and other information about hospital wage index reclassifications are available on the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services website. For more detail information, see the analysis description.
