The purpose of this review was to determine the allowability of pension costs claimed for Medicare reimbursement for Fiscal Years (FYs) 1992 through 1998.   We determined that Health Care Service Corporation (HCSC) underclaimed allowable Medicare pension costs by $1,292,114.  We recommended that HCSC revise its Final Administrative Cost Proposals (FACPs) to reflect the remaining allowable pension costs.
