Medicare DSH/SSI Rates

Recently, CMS published the long-awaited SSI rates for use when computing Medicare DSH payments for FYs 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009. What this means for providers is that a flood of NPR dates are being released for open cost reports, dating back to FY 2007 and earlier. Some providers have waited nearly four years for this NPR.

Now is the time to look at your Low Volume/Volume Decrease Payment Adjustments opportunities for the years that qualify to ensure that accurate documentation is submitted within the 180 day deadline from receiving your NPR.

Our consultants are available to assist you in submitting this request for additional Medicare reimbursement.
