Medicare Desk Review of Bad Debt Listings

Bad Debt Listings are subject to various levels of review during the desk review or audit process.

The completion of review and type of review is dependent on thresholds defined by CMS.

For the 12/31/21 Medicare Cost Reports desk review process, CGS is requesting additional documentation on the Bad debt listings for selected SNFs. The list of items CGS is requesting includes, but isn’t limited to,

•       bad debt policy

•       bad debt recovery policy

•       remittance advices

•       proof of write off

•       and patient liability verification

Please make sure that you are completing your bad debt log accurately and retaining corresponding documentation. Please contact our office if you would like to discuss. Call us at (270) 726-4033.
