CMS Posts FY 2015 Hospital Wage Index Data for Hospital Review

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) released hospital wage and occupational mix data one month early on Sept. 13. Hospitals may review and request revisions to their data, which will be used to develop the fiscal year 2015 hospital wage index, until Nov. 21. Because of the earlier than expected data release, other subsequent dates in the wage index development process will also occur earlier than in previous years. Hospitals are encouraged to review the attached CMS timeline.
