Reporting Labor & Delivery Days for Direct Graduate Medical Education

Labor and Delivery days should be included in S-3, Part I, Column 8, line 32.00.  These days should be excluded from S-3, Part I, Column 8, line 1.00.  This is to ensure that the days are not double counted when included in the Total Patient Day formula for GME reimbursement. .

The days will flow from Absolute and populate to HFS to E-4 via the aai file. No direct keying of days to E-4 is required.

This regulation was updated for cost reporting periods beginning on or after October 1, 2013.
