In January, CMS began a planned one-week transition of the Provider Statistical and Reimbursement Report (PS&R) application from the IACS system to the EIDM system. However, there were technical problems with the transition and it was postponed until further notice. Providers that were not active in the IACS system at the start of the systems transition have not been able to register in the IACS system and are unable to access their PS&R reports, creating difficulties for a number of hospice providers relative to self-calculation and reporting of the 2014 aggregate cap as well as for home health providers that were under the deadline to meet cost reporting requirements.
Effective April 15, 2015, two of CMS’ HHH contractors (CGS and NGS) have announced that CMS is re-enabling registration in the IACS system.
