Hospice Mandatory Reporting Reminder: Deadline for Self-reporting of Aggregate Cap is Feb 28


Hospice providers are required to self-calculate and submit their Aggregate Cap Report for the 2021 Cap year no later than February 28, 2022. Failure to file the self-determined cap report with your Medicare Administrative Contractor (MAC) in a timely fashion may result in payment suspension. If you have a Cap-related liability, you are required to submit payment at the time you submit your report.

In order to calculate the Cap, you must be able to access your hospice’s PS&R data, so if you do not have access to CMS’ Identify Management System (formerly EIDM), through which the PS&R data is available) it is advisable that you take action immediately to ensure timely access so that you can meet the reporting deadline.

All three MACs for Home Health and Hospice have online instructions for self-calculation and submission of the Cap report…
