Hospice Aggregate Cap Report & Overpayment Returns due March 31!

Man folding arms and smiling

Remember that hospices must calculate and report their estimated aggregate Cap to their Medicare Administrative Contractor (MAC) between three and five months after the October 31 each year. 

That makes the final deadline for the 2015 CAP report March 31, 2016. There's still time to comply. Don't risk payment suspension by filing late.


Recertify Agency Enterprise Identity Management (EIDM) Account or Lose Access

Fingers drumming
If security officers in every hospice and home health agency don't act by March 15, their agencies will be unable to comply with requirements to file cost reports (home health) and to calculate & report estimated aggregate caps (hospice) by March 31 if the hospice’s MAC does not provide the data directly to the hospice. 
Theresa M. Forster, VP for Hospice Policy & Programs, National Association for Home Care & Hospice circulated this message warning agencies how to avoid losing access to Provider Statistical and Reimbursement (PS&R) data necessary to report by ensuring all agency security officers act on the email received from their respective Medicare Administrative Contractor (MAC).
