Hospitals have until May 29 to verify their wage data in the wage index public use files released in April, notify the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services and their Medicare administrative contractor of any errors, and submit a letter and supporting documentation to request corrections to any CMS errors.

Under the inpatient prospective payment system proposed rule for fiscal year 2021, CMS will incorporate verified corrections into the final FY 2021 wage index before it takes effect Oct 1.
