RESOLVED: Providers not Receiving Uncompensated Care Payments

 Current Status
11/18/2019: Palmetto GBA found that inpatient claims were already in an “SB9000” status/location when the Provider Specific File (PSF) was updated. This caused claims to process without the uncompensated care payment. A review of more recent claims determined that the uncompensated care payment was added. Palmetto GBA will mass-adjust inpatient claims processed on or after October 1, 2019, through October 31, 2019. No provider action is required.

Issue Identified: October 31, 2019

Palmetto GBA has identified an issue with claims with dates of service or after October 1, 2019, that are not receiving the uncompensated care add-on payment.

Provider Action
There is no provider action required. Claims will be mass-adjusted to properly apply the uncompensated care add-on payment.

Status History
10/31/2019: Palmetto GBA has reported this issue to the Fiscal Intermediary Shared System (FISS) Maintainer. We will notify providers as soon as we receive further information.
