AHA Extends Deadline for Survey on Probe and Educate Audits
CHA encourages hospitals to respond by March 21

The American Hospital Association (AHA) has extended until March 21 the deadline for hospitals to respond to a short survey on the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ (CMS) two-midnight policy and related probe and educate audit process. The survey will help determine whether Noridian is conducting the probe and educate audits consistent with the standards set forth by CMS, and whether the audits will be completed by Sept. 30. Responses also will help CHA to address any issues or concerns regarding the probe and educate audits with CMS, and assist with general advocacy efforts on the two-midnight policy. The survey link and a hospital-specific password were sent to hospital CEOs last week, and the information was emailed again today. For questions regarding the survey, contact AHA Member Relations at (800) 424-4301.
