Deadline Approaching to Submit Medicare Physician Attestation Statements

What’s happening: As a condition of participation, Medicare-certified hospitals must complete attestation and acknowledgment of physicians with newly granted admitting privileges in the previous calendar year.  

What else to know: Attestation statements for 2022 should be submitted by Dec. 29. 

According to Livanta, the Medicare beneficiary and family centered care quality improvement organization for California, there are about 160 hospitals in California that have not yet completed this important requirement. 

Completion of this action is a condition of a hospital’s participation in the Medicare program. Livanta is obligated to report overdue hospital documentation to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) upon CMS’ request. 

More information on how to complete this requirement is available on Livanta’s website.
