The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services Friday posted a supplemental file containing hospital wage and occupational mix data that were omitted from the agency's October public use file. Although the supplemental file contains additional providers' data, which will be used to develop the proposed fiscal year 2014 wage index, CMS acknowledged that it was still unable to include the data of some providers due to technical difficulties. The agency also extended to Dec. 10 the deadline for hospitals to request revisions to their Worksheet S-3 wage and occupational mix data. Hospitals can view the supplemental file and other FY 2014 wage index information on CMS' website.
