Jonathan Skaggs, senior manager with PYA, and Chris Kenny, a partner with King & Spalding, presented “From Here to Eternity: The Medicare S-10 and Uncompensated Care Audits,” at the Healthcare Financial Management Association’s (HFMA) Annual National Institute (ANI).  Their session took an in-depth look at the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) 2552-10 Medicare cost report worksheet S-10.  They explained how hospital payments for uncompensated care were affected by recent changes to the regulations, and  examined best practices used to complete S-10.

They also:

  • Explained how to draft and follow charity care and financial assistance policies.
  • Identified areas for improvement in charity care and financial assistance policies.
  • Provided insight regarding the Proposed Rule’s Charity Care Log.
  • Described how to navigate contractor audits.
  • Discussed the necessary documentation to support a charity claim during an audit.
