Occupational Mix Survey Deadline Extended

CMS has granted an extension for hospitals nationwide to file their Occupational Mix Surveys (OMS). The original due date of July 1, 2020, has been extended to August 3, 2020.

Every three years, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) requires any hospital that is subject to the Inpatient Prospective Payment System (IPPS) to complete an OMS. The data collected from these surveys is used to calculate the Occupational Mix Adjustment Factors (OMAF) which will affect your FFY 2022, 2023, and 2024 DRG and APC rates.

Since the survey is only required once every three years, we find that many hospitals have questions about the impact the Occupational Mix Surveys can have on their reimbursement or how CMS uses the surveys. Many times we find that the surveys have been completed inaccurately or are incomplete. In order to optimize your hospital’s reimbursement, it is crucial for your hospital to identify the areas of opportunity and understand how the data needs to be reported.

We would appreciate the opportunity to assist your hospital to identify opportunities and to develop strategies while completing this survey. Please contact Kyle Smith with any questions.
