Fourth Quarter 2013 Medicaid CMI Report Problems

Virginia nursing facilities have received their quarterly reports from Myers and Stauffer (formerly Clifton Gunderson) for Third Quarter 2013 (Final) and Fourth Quarter 2013 (Preliminary). The Fourth Quarter Preliminary CMI should have been calculated using October 1 - December 31, 2013. Instead, it appears to have been calculated using October 31 - December 1, 2013, thereby omitting about a third of the Medicaid census that should have been included. Many providers have contacted Myers and Stauffer or the Department of Medical Assistance Services (DMAS) about discrepancies in these reports.  

DMAS has communicated to providers requesting that nursing facilities not utilize these reports or submit research requests until further communication from the Department. DMAS officials have indicated that they are working to fix the problem.
