The deadline is Feb. 15 to review revised federal fiscal year 2024 wage index data files and submit correction requests, including supporting documentation.
On Jan. 30, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) released the revised files. Correction requests are limited to errors resulting from CMS or Medicare administrative contractor mishandling of data. Requests also may include revisions of desk review adjustments to data as included in the January wage index public use file (PUF).
CHA members are strongly encouraged to review the January wage index PUF and submit corrections as necessary.
