Dominican Hospital Reported Overstated Wage Data, Resulting in Medicare Overpayments

Dominican Hospital, located in Santa Cruz, California, did not comply with all Medicare requirements for reporting wage data used by CMS to calculate the fiscal year 2014 wage index. We estimated that, as a result, in 2014 Medicare overpaid the hospital $67,000 and overpaid two other hospitals in the same core-based statistical area a total of $87,000.
