Section: Public Policy and Advocacy

In February 2013, the Recovery Audit Contractor (RAC) in Region C, Connolly, announced it will be identifying hospice claims with core-based statistical area (CBSA) codes that are “invalid or no longer in use.” Connolly also has an active issue for CBSA codes in home health. Both providers’ wage index payments are based on these codes.

Affected States Include: Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and West Virginia, as well as in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
