Palmetto GBA: Provider Payment Hold Due to Untimely Cost Report Submission

Posted on Thursday, June 14, 2018 3:30 PM

Palmetto GBA has experienced many providers submitting untimely and/or incomplete cost reports. A large majority of payment withholds are a result of submission of the cost report electronically through eServices, but failure to mail the worksheet with signature.

It is imperative to file timely and complete to prevent being placed on payment hold!  When a cost report is filed late, the provider will be placed on payment hold. The payment hold will be released after the cost report has been received, reviewed, and accepted. In peak periods (such as the month of June), it may take 30 days to accept the report. You may refer to Cost Report Filing Information for further details.
