CMS Hospital Transmittal-17: Final Version Released
CMS has released the final version of Transmittal-17 (T-17) for hospital cost reports. Key differences from the T-17 draft were removal of the proposed worksheets S-12 and D-6, the proposed exhibit changes to Medicare DSH, Medicare Bad Debts, and S-10 Charity, and the exclusion of the proposed worksheet S-3 line for hospital bed increases due to COVID-19.
Be on the lookout for future articles explaining differences from T-16, including changes to Medicare Organ Acquisition for Kidneys, Wage Index, and more.
