Contractor Postretirement Benefits and Supplemental Employee Retirement Plan Costs

Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services reimburses a portion of its contractors' postretirement health benefits costs and the supplemental employee retirement plans costs. The reimbursement is determined by the cost reimbursement principles contained in the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR), Cost Accounting Standards as required by the Medicare contracts. We will review the postretirement health benefit costs and the supplemental employee retirement plans of Medicare contractors to determine the allowability, allocability, and reasonableness of the benefits and plans, as well as the costs charged to Medicare contracts. Criteria are in the FAR at 48 CFR §§ 31.201 through 31.205.
