The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ (CMS’) federal fiscal year (FFY) 2018 inpatient prospective payment system final rule establishes changes to fund distribution for Medicare disproportionate share hospital (DSH) uncompensated care (UCC) payments. CMS determined that it will phase-in payments based on information collected from Line 30 on the S-10 Worksheet of the Medicare cost report to determine the UCC payment factor, starting with FFY 2014 cost reports for DSH UCC payments in FFY 2018.

As previously reported in CHA News, hospitals may submit revisions to Worksheet S-10 of their Medicare cost report for FFYs 2014 and 2015. CHA urges members to review Worksheet S-10 of their FFY 2014 and 2015 cost reports and submit amendments to their respective Medicare administrative contractors before the Oct. 31 deadline.
